Green cloth with black titling to spine and upper board. HOW TO BE ALWAYS WELL! That ought to be a strange title for a book written for civilized people to read. The very fact of being civilized ought to imply a knowledge of how to be always well, since it is true that the uncivilized or savage races are almost entirely free from disease. Think of it! People knowing nothing of science, people without books or schools, people who know nothing even of the three R's, people who can only read the sign language of nature, people who never heard of sanitation, or hygiene, or dietetics, or psychology, or domestic science, or physical culture, -are able to grow to be very powerful and large in stature, to live very lengthy lives - judged by civilized standards almost entirely free from disease, and die, almost invariably, from old age or accident. 12th Edition. 457pp. Index. Size: 8vo Demy (8½" x 5½")
