(Health) Food Fads, Facts and Fallacies by a Philadelphia Physician.


Illus. with humorous drawings by A.A. Wallgren. Small pictorial boards. First Edition. Philadelphia: Medical Searchlight, 1931.

A book about nutrition, but framed in a humorous way so as to not turn off skeptical readers. Advice on healthy habits is given in a satirical way, but the message gets through: diet, exercise, and inhibition are the paths to enlightenment. Mild soiling to covers, small ink spot to upper front cover, else very good.
