The Mongol in Our Midst

F G Crookshank

Originally published in 1925.

"A brilliant piece of speculative induction" Saturday Review

Ronald Campbell Macfie

"An exceptionally stimulating book..." Saturday Review

Pygmalion or the Doctor of the Future

R M Wilson

Originally published in 1925

"No doctor worth his salt would venture to say that Dr.Wilson was wrong." Daily Herald

"Dr Wilson has added a brilliant essay to this series." Times Literary Supplement

The author foresees an evolution in the personality of the doctor, who will become less of a scientist, more of a humanist, and use every spiritual agency, as well as every practical measure, to restore the human body and soul to health.

66pp.

The Conquest of Cancer

H W S Wright

Originally published in 1925

"Eminently suitable for general reading. The problem is fairly and lucidly presented." F G Crookshank

Whilst affirming that the causes and treatment of cancer will never be solved by the efforts of the medical profession alone, this volume provides an accessible source of information on cancer and proposes routine examination for those people aged 40 and over as the best means of defence against cancer.
