New York, Ida W. Schuman, 1956
(22.5 cm), 198 pp. 1515 items; priced. Self-wrappers. - Arno Benedict Luckhardt (1885-1957) was professor emeritus of physiology at the University of Chicago; according to Fulton’s prefatory memoir, he “collected broadly in the history of medicine as well as physiology, and the selection which Mr Schumann now presents in the catalogue illustrates the catholicity of his tastes and interests”. This is the second catalogue in a “new series” inaugurated by Ida Walerstein Schuman (1912-1977) after her husband, the pre-eminent dealer in medical books, Henry Schuman (1899-1962), began to concentrate on publishing. ¶ Ink spot on fore-edge; otherwise a very good, unmarked copy.
