New York: The McGraw-Hill Book Company, 1971. Hardcover. Good + / Good. Item #073379
Pages crisp and clean except for some specking along the top of the book, a little drip spot on the right edge, a date penned on the front free endpaper and Doc Pritham's death notice taped to the half-title page, and a large surface abrasion on the final free endpaper; binding square, hard cover modestly bumped at the top free corners and softened and shelfworn around top and bottom edges, otherwise clean and sound; dust jacket slightly water-stained at spine heel and bottom front, with some short, partially open tears around the edges, a small open tear mid-spine, two brown droplet spots at the lower rear, and some fading and lines of surface chipping at spine and foreedges, yet remains striking and unclipped, now protected in a clear sleeve. 320pp. A narrative retelling of the life of a country doctor, one of the last to offer visiting general practice services and, as a result of this book and other media attention, a beloved popular figure.
