About this Item

Small 4to. Quarter black calf and burgundy cloth, gilt spine. xxxi, 1265pp. Numerous illustrations and line drawings (some color). Good plus. Spine leather rather cracked and slightly chipped at head and tail, but durable and with gilt lettering bright and legible; front hinge bears older black cloth book tape mend that extends slightly onto right edge of spine -- decent and fairly discreet. Tight, fairly attractive later printing ("Seventeenth Thousand") of this 1900 text, probably the most famous title by the American surgeon and inventor and medical director of the noted Battle Creek Sanitarium. JOHN HARVEY KELLOGG (1852-1943) is best known as co-creator of the corn flake, together with younger brother, businessman Will Keith Kellogg (of W.K. Kellogg Company fame). If you're an Anthony Hopkins fan, you'll remember Hopkins' portrayal of the incredibly bizarre J.H. Kellogg (whose treatment for most ailments was an enema) in the 1994 film "The Road to Wellville." This copy bears the bold ownership signature on front flyleaf of Leone Sweet, who was a nurse and a 1903 "graduate" of Kellogg's Battle Creek Sanitarium and president of its alumnae association. Despite spine wear, this copy is tight and fairly attractive -- and internally rates a "Near fine," for it's bright, clean and quite lovely, with superb illustrations. Bookseller Inventory # 33684
