With 64 plates, some in full color. Library of America order form laid-in. Forest green boards, gilt lettering to spine. Slipcase is bordered in bright, double gilt. A hint of shelfwear to slipcase only. Perfect for gift. Subscribers Edition. Issued in cream-colored slipcase with no dustjacket in a "..neat, handsome and unpretentious format .. Books will last for generations and withstand the wear of frequent use. The rigorous design and manufacturing standards established for the series have been recognized by the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA). The paper is acid-free and meets the requirements for permanence set by the American National Standards Institute; it will not turn yellow or brittle. The books are bound with the grain of the paper to ensure that they open easily and lie flat without crinkling or buckling. The binding boards are flexible yet strong and make the book light, easy to carry, trim in appearance, and a pleasure to hold. The page layout has been designed for clarity as well as elegance. The typeface, Galliard, is exceptionally readable and easy on the eyes. The binding cloth is durable woven rayon, dyed in the thread for richness of color. Handsome endsheets match the binding cloth and add to the visual unity of the series. The books are Smyth-sewn with waxed thread for permanence and flexibility, and each includes a ribbon marker. The text block of each volume measures 4 7/8" x 7 7/8" (cloth boards 5 1/8" x 8 1/8"). This trim size is based on the "golden rectangle," which the ancient Greeks considered to be the ideal proportion. This perfect relation of height and width is found throughout nature and has been used through the centuries by artists, sculptors, architects, and designers." (from publisher's descriptions).

Translated, and in conjunction with the author revised and enlarged, by Handerson, reprinted 1971 (two volumes). "The history of medicine, of all the branches of that art, is the one to which least attention is devoted by physicians; and yet its study not only possesses great scientific value, but likewise includes an important germ of practical information. [The author's] plan has been to consider first the genetic side of the subject, introducing for this purpose a sketch of even prehistoric medicine, and next to set forth the history of the medical profession in considerable detail," (author's preface).
