About this Item

8vo. 206p. With 8 black and white photo plates including the frontispiece of the author. An illustration of "Keyes’ oil syringe" is included with the text on p. 161. Bound in blue publisher’s cloth with gilt title on the front cover. No dust jacket. The binding is sturdy but contains rubbing, wear and bumping to the covers and to the extremities. Some fading and spots of discoloration are also present along the edges. The upper corner of the front cover is well bumped. A name is penciled on the front free fly-leaf. Interior pages are clean. Thomas Bassett Keyes was a Chicago physician, Chairman of the First Organization Committee of the American Congress of Tuberculosis, and one of the Vice-Presidents of the International Congress of Tuberculosis. Keyes believed that he could cure pulmonary tuberculosis by giving patients subcutaneous injections of oil. The photo plates depict patients whom the author claims made a complete recovery from tuberculosis – i.e. "Case VII. Mr. W.L.G., who gained 100 pounds in weight and recovered entirely from pulmonary tuberculosis. Treatment: Subcutaneous injections of oil. He remains well and has been actively engaged since the second month’s treatment. His life was renewed.". Bookseller Inventory # 000823
