The Secret Formula [CANCER CURE NOVEL]
Heath Cranton Limited London 1932 - First Edition. Ogle dustjacket art. Author's first novel. Peters was a pseudonym for a prominent writer in the Leeds Jewish community. "Robert Steele, M. D., young volatile, hot headed, enthusiastic, believed that finding the cause was not half as important as find the cure; and by a lucky accident stumbled across a promising clue. Working feverishly night and day he finally succeeds in finding the cure for cancer, but at the moment of triumph hi is ruined, or almost ruined, by man's commonest weakness. The author takes us into the Cancer Research Department of a University, into the wards of a Hospital, even into its Post Mortem Room. We are taken into the homes of the slum patients, into their bedrooms, Doctor's consulting rooms, Nursing Homes, Convalescent Homes and even Materinty Homes throw their doors open wide for us; and finally we are allowed to invade the dread precincts of that august tribunal the General Medical Council." Very scarce and early novel dealing with cancer treatment. Almost Near Fine, some foxing to page edges, mild cocking, in Very Good dustjacket, chipped at spine ends, small chip at mid front panel.
