7.4 x 5.25 inches. 179 pages. The highly uncommon revised and enlarged edition of this work on the use of straps in giving osteopathic treatments. The first edition, published 4 years earlier, had 120 pages and 42 plates. This edition has 179 pages and 44 figures. A few of the photographic plates of the first edition evidently were dropped and a few illustrations and quite a bit of text added. The last plate in the 1st ed. is #42 on page 109. That photo appears as figure 38 on page 99 of the 2nd ed. The final figure [#44] in the 2nd ed. appears on page 144. There are 39 photographs and 5 illustrations in this edition. Have a look at the first edition on archivedotorg. I have been unable to locate another copy of the second edition to view: the on-demand printed copies are of the 1st, as are the scanned copies that I could find on the net. Some of my photos appear murky or unfocussed; this is not true of the crisp and charming images in the book. Brown cloth {hardcover} with gilt title to front. Former owner's inscription and bookplate to front endpaper. Some splitting at gutter for an inch or so to a few pages but without jeopardizing binding or security of leaf. Binding is sound, with sturdy hinges. Marginal smudging to a few pages {p. 70 for example} appears to be from the printing process: image/text not affected. Overall a clean, unmarked interior.
