The edges of the covers are gently bumped and rubbed. There are two inch splits in the boards along the joints at the foot of the spine, and there is a tiny loss from the leather at the foot of the spine. A small amount of the underlying board is exposed on the bottom edge of the front cover near the spine. The pages are clean and bright. The book is sturdy.
The first recorded operations on the nervous system were executed in the Salt Lake Valley in 1892 by Samuel H. Pinkerton.
