MEDICINE. - Nostrums and Quackery. Articles on the nostrum evil and quackery reprinted, with additions and modifications, from the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Chicago, American Medical Association 1912. Octavo publisher's cloth; 708pp, numerous illustrations. Ex parliamentary library with their gilt crest on the front board, a couple of inoffensive stamps; a rather good copy. ¶ Second edition, less than a year later and much larger than the first, and a goldmine of fraudulent, worthless and dangerous cures and their advertising. The American Medical Association has a fiercer approach than the similar books produced by its British counterpart - pretty much following national characteristics. The British book is laconic and offers few opinions, letting the "juxtaposition of the claims made and the facts shown by analysis" speak for themselves, while in the American book "evil" appears five times in the first two paragraphs of the preface.
