Mystery, Magic, and Medicine

While vacation in Maine over the holidays, I was ranting to a new friend about my interest in indigenous medicine and shamanism when he mentioned he had a book I might like. He found it in an old barn many years ago with a friend, and said I could have it if it sounded interesting. When we got back to his house, he handed me Mystery, Magic, and Medicine by Howard W. Haggard, MD, Associate Professor of Applied Physiology at Yale University, published in 1933. The book even had an old letter from a representative at E.R. Squibb & Sons, a pharmaceutical manufacturer, enclosed in its fraying pages. A truly rare and excellent addition to my growing collection. Thanks Zach!
