The Art of the Bone-Setter - A Testimony and a Vindication
London: Thomas Murby, 1884. xv, 144pp. Portrait frontispiece (tipped on photograph with facsimile signature). Errata slip. 8 plates. A scarce book by a practicing bonesetter.There were very few publications on bone-setting which was regarded with great suspicion by the medical profession in the nineteenth century. In his preface the author refers to two - Dr Wharton Hood's treatise published in 1871 "On Bone-setting (so-called) " and Turner's "The Compleat Bone-setter" published about 200 years before..No inscriptions. Green cloth gilt, half-title and last page browned. A very nice clean copy of this scarce title. . First Edition. Hardback. Very Good.
