Fine. Item #014550
A nice twenty-two line letter by Dr. H. L. Harley whose articles on medicine appeared in JAMA (1919) on gifted children but was well known for his medical service in World War I and his book collection. Harley himself a bibliomaniac writes regarding Casey Wood's book on the fundi of birds that while it is a beautifully prepared book considering the restrictions in World War I (because of material shortages) that it was obviously a little dated even in 1917. He then lauds the importance of the ophthalmoscope. A nice item probably written in early 1920's. Was stamped by previous owner December 5, 1952.
