In Italy he saw the Italian striking as usual, playing morra as usual, and kissing and making up as usual-and Italy's struggle to come back. Through Europe Roberts went, watching the innocent little fights and rows which the Peace Conference started so that people would not get tired of war too quickly." (Booth Tarkington, from the dust from the dust jacket).CONDITION: Good, spine and edges of covers faded, but all lettering etc., distinct, occasional light foxing; dust jacket good with a few short tears, rubbing, minor soiling, and stains.

"In the frequent analysis of the bile, which have been given to the world, the results have been very different. Thus, for instance, the bile has been considered a true soap, formed by the combination of animal oil, and soda, to which a small proportion of mucilage and resin has been added...I was obliged to confine myself to one view of the subject, viz to the difference (if any) which exists between the bile of different animals." Describes experiments using the ox, dog, pig, sturgeon, human and others, with a conclusion in support of absorption. "In embracing an antiquated doctine, I am sanctioned by experiment. This surely ought not to be deserted for the deceptive flushings of a diseased imagination." REFERENCES: Shaw & Shoemaker, 1265; Austin, R.B. Early American Medical Imprints, 1615.

Sorge describes in depth the following Cossack arms: a 15 ft. sharpened iron rod, two pistols, a musket, sabre, wide knife, whip and more.
