we have a Dr. J.R. Brinkley's Doctor Book from 1933. This book shows the new home of the Brinkley Hospital in Del Rio, Texas. John Brinkley was the so-called quack doctor, the "MILFORD MESSIAH" that performed over 16,000 goat testicle transplants into men. Doubted by the American Medical Association, he was shut down. He decided the only way to get his license back was to run for governor of Kansas. He lost his bid for Governor (just barely) and was forced to close his hospital in Milford, KS and move to Del Rio, TX. The book contains about 90 pages with pictures, articles on diseases, and information on his hospital and what he could do. He guaranteed your satification by paying for your railroad fare from your residence to Del Rio. It also tells about the largest and most powerful broadcasting station in America, which he owned. The book is in very good condition and rather usual. Shipping is $4.00 in the U.S.
