Wrappers rather foxed and tanned; light browning to pages; staples a bit rusted; occasional fox spot to text; earlier owner’s hand-stamp to upper cover. Good condition. ‘Special facilities for a detailed study in a large number of cases of epilepsy have enabled us to form some definite conclusions which may possibly aid those who contemplate undergoing venene injections; and medical men who are already giving their patients this form of treatment. These conclusions have been made possible through the cooperation of Messrs. H. and D. FitzSimons who have investigated and tabulated the reports received by them since the publication of my Paper entitled Snake Venoms their Therapeutic Uses and Possibilities” which was read in Section D at the combined British and South African Associations for the Advancement of Science at the University of Cape Town July 1929.'”
