The biggy of the late 1800's. Clearly shows the massive inroads in medical science and the treatment of disease.

ALCOHOL AND THE HUMAN BODY In fact alcohol was known to be a poison, and considered quite dangerous. Something modern medicine now agrees with. This was known circa 1907. A very impressive scientific book on the subject.

DISEASES OF THE SKIN is a massive book on skin diseases from 1914. Don't be feint hearted though, it's loaded with photos that I found disturbing.

Clinical Manual of Mental Diseases. By Francis X. Dercum,
Ph. D., M. D., Professor of Nervous and Mental Diseases at Jefferson
Medical College, Philadelphia. Octavo of 425 pages. Cloth, $3.00 net.


This is a book really useful to the family physiciana book that tells you
how to diagnose, how to treateither at home or in an institutionall
classes of mental diseases. First, Dr. Dercum takes up the various primary
forms of mental disease, giving emphasis to those you meet in your daily practice
as general practitioner—delirium, confusion, stupor. Then melancholia, mania,
the insanities of early life, paranoia, the neurasthenic-neuropathic disorders, and
the dementias follow. The mental disturbances of the infections (syphilis, tubercu­
losis, malaria, pellagra, rheumatic fever, etc), the various forms of intoxicational
insanities, those due to metabolic disorders, visceral disease, diseases of the
nervous system are all given you—and from your viewpoint. An important sec­
tion is that devoted to the insanities of pregnancy. An entire part is devoted to
the psychologic interpretations of symptoms as evolved by Freud and his disciples.
You get a full discussion of the role of dreams.

For this new (8th) edition this standard work has undergone a thorough re­
vision. Vertigo and its labyrinthine relations, as developed by Bárány, has
received careful consideration; much new matter has been added to the section
on Infantile Paralysis; syphilis of the nervous system has been brought into accord
with recent epoch-making discoveries. Throughout, references to the new inves­
tigations of the spinal fluid, and the relation of spinal fluid changes to the various
organic diseases of the brain and cord have been introduced. The bearing of
internal secretion upon nervous disorders has been brought right down to date.
Tetany has been given its place among nervous diseases associated with glandular
disorder. Altogether over 300 interpolations and alterations have been made.
It is more than ever the standard,

Brills Psychanalysis


Psychanalysis: Its Theories and Practical Application. By A. A.
Brill, Ph. B., M. D., Clinical Assistant in Neurology at Columbia
University Medical School. Octavo of 392 pages. Cloth, $3.00 net.


To the general practitioner, who first sees these “borderline” cases (the
roses and the psychoses), as well as to those specially interested in neurologic
work, Dr. Brll's work will prove most valuable. Dr. Brill has had wide clinical
experience, both in America and in Europe. The results of this experience you
get in this book. Here you get the practical application of all Freud’s theories
and fr
om the pen of a man thoroughly competent to write.

Unlike other forms of psychotherapy, psychanalysis deals with the neuroses
as entities. It does not treat them as symptoms, as do hypnotism, suggestion,
and persuasion. Such treatment is similar to treating the cough or fever regard­
less of the causal disease. Psychanalysis concerns itself with the individual as a
personality. It gives you a real insight into the neuroses and the psychoses.

words. Every word has a separate paragraph, thus making it easy to find a
word quickly. The tables of arteries, muscles, nerves, veins, etc, are of the
greatest help in assembling anatomic facts. Every word is given its definition—a
definition that defines in the fewest possible words.
