The Life and Times of Sir Charles Hastings Founder of the British Medical Association.

pp. xii, 516. Portrait frontispiece, 32 plates with a number of illustrations. Without the dust wrapper, but otherwise a very good copy with numerous marginal annotations by ZACHARY COPE.

*This is ZACHARY COPE'S copy, with much marginal annotation and two letters added - a typed letter copy? signed Zachary [Cope], to McMenemey, one side, 1959, pointing out a few errors, giving fulsome praise and hoping for a second edition; and an autograph letter signed from McMenemey, 2 sides, in reply, 1959, asking for a list of errors and excusing himself from the labour of a second edition - 'It is a relief to have it finished and I do not think I must attempt to do any more biographies until I have ceased to be a neuropathologist. It is not good for my reputation !'
