A Manual of Nursing: Prepared for the Training School for Nurses Attached to Bellevue Hospital

New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1878. Cloth. The uncommon 1878 1st edition of this important nursing manual intended for the wide variety of care at New York's legendary Bellevue Hospital. A clean, surprisingly well-preserved copy to boot: Tight and VG+ in its chocolate-brown cloth, with bright, completely unrubbed gilt-titling along the front panel and spine. Just the faintest hint of light scuffing to the rear panel, very light foxing along the fore-edge. 16mo, chapter headings include "Observation of the Sick", "Administration of Medicines", "Dressing of Wounds", "Nursing of Sick Children", "Cookery for the Sick", etc. Very Good +.
