History of Medicine



A classic in medical history, A History of Medicine by Douglas Guthrie, 448 pages, 72 plates, was published by Thomas Nelson and Sons Ltd in June 1945. This, now relatively rare, first edition is in good condition: slight wear to top of spine and corners of cover, a few scuffs/dents on linen covers, no dust jacket - see photos. The spine is straight - there is camera distortion in the first photo. Small owner's stamp on front end-paper (see photo). Overall a good, clean tight copy.

In 1948 he founded the Scottish Society of the History of Medicine.
