ANTIQUE MEDICAL PHARMACUTICAL ELECTRIC SHOCK MACHINE ELECTRO THERAPEUTIC BOOK
- Source: eBay UK
In truly stunningly near mint condition a Hawkins Electrical question and answer guide book published in 1917 ,being part of an A - Z guide to electronic equipment of the time. This particular volume covers Electrical Pumps, Elevators, cranes, heating, soldering, plating, and Electro Therapeutics. It is the Electro Therapeutics section that is of the most interest to the medical world, covering every aspect of the use of electricity and electric shock machine as medical cure. Approximately 18% of this book is dedicated to that subject with a lot of illustrations and explanations to the world of electrical shock treatments. I have shown just a few examples of pages covering this medical subject. All kinds of equipment probes ,current applications and treatments are covered, in this section of the book. The book itself is soft covered measuring approximately 5 x 7.75 inches by about 0.5 inch thick, it is absolute lovely condition almost as if bought yesterday. No age odour or damage I would class as mint for age, published in 1917, it is really lovely. As mentioned other subjects of electrical equipment are covered but it is the Medical section shown that is of great interest to collectors of Electrical shock and probe machines., with about 57 pages of the whole book dedicated to the subject.MANY THANKS FOR LOOKING.
