The Elliman R.E.P. Book. (Rubbing Eases Pain Handbook.)

pp. 96. 70 text figures. Stapled into self-wraps, a light marginal brown mark at the top margin of the first half of the booklet, a few leaves at the end with the lower corners faintly creased, overall and considering the size and fragility of this ephemeral item, in pretty good condition.

*This is a promotional booklet making repeated reference to the full-size text of 256 pages. However, none of the entries in COPAC for this title gives the pagination as 256 - of those listed, pagination is : 248 - 245 - 252 - 250. At the end, there is reference to the Elliman Animals' Treatment handbook - '.... it has reached a sixth edition'. This is dated by the British Library as c.1925, allowing a similar date for this booklet, not listed in COPAC. With sections on DROWNING, ARTIFICIAL RESPIRATION. PP. 71-74. 2 text figures showing Howard's Method of Artificial Respiration; GUNSHOT WOUNDS - TOOTHACHE - SWEATING FEET, etc. etc.
