I really enjoy reading old books and this wasn't a let down. However, in order to glean anything from it you should probably be familiar with some of the really old medicines and medicinal terms. It has really helped me to understand some of the things I've read on death certificates in my studies of genealogy.

Home Medical Library is a quaint - and very honest - review of the medical practices on the early 1900's. What it lacks in the form of modern drugs it more than makes up for in the use of common sense.

Please keep in mind that the writer of that era did NOT have access to so many of the medical solutions we have today. Therefore this is NOT a useful medical library in a modern sense, but a very interesting read for historic and research for medical practices in early 1900s America.

Again, this is a period piece for research and not an actual modern medical journal. It has such interesting information as treating "Housemaid's Knee with a thick covering of Cataplasma Kaolini" and it calls fingernail fungus "Run Around; Whitlow or Felon's" illness. These are obviously very dated terms.

Yes - a fun research read.

No - an accurate Home Medical Library.

i took a first aid class roughly a year ago and chose to download this book. i found it to be surprisingly helpful. mind you i am no doctor but paired with the knowledge i gained in my first aid training, it is certain worth getting.

I have just skimmed through the book but it does seem very informative. I have it on to do list to read comprehensively versus scanning. I feel it could be a valuable tool.

Quaint advice that is figuratively helpful, but literally laughable.
