Vintage 1893 The Principles and Practice of Medicine - Designed for the Use of Practitioners and Students of Medicine by William Osler - First Edition Second State. The word "Gorgias" has the correct spelling.
The book is inscribed inside - Bolivar L Falconer, Georgetown Medical College, Washington, D. I did some research and found out Dr Bolivar Lang Falconer from Marlin, Texas was the first paying passenger to fly around the world by air. He flew on the new Zeppelin Von Hindenburg (later crashed) crossing the Atlantic Ocean on it and on the Graf Zeppelin in Germany.
On the return trip he flew on the China Clipper. He wrote a book about it titled- Flying Around The World which was published in 1937. I found a copy of his book online where he signed it using only his first name and the signature matches this medical book.
The book is in fair condition. I'm not a book specialist. The cover has some wear. The front cover is loose but holding on by two sturdy strings that are part of the binding.The back cover is tighter than the front but is a little loose. Otherwise the binding is in good condition. The inside of the book is in nice condition (see photos for condition).
