NOTES ON THE PRESERVATION OF PERSONAL HEALTH IN WARM CLIMATES Ross Institute 1962 Near Fine
By Ross Institute of Tropical Hygiene,
Price: $25.00


Add to wish list


Detailed Product Description
Londoin, Ross Institute of Tropical Hygiene, 1962, later printing. 85 pages,  photos, drawings. Small pamphlet 6'' x 4'', perfect bound in a red cover. The red color of the cover has bled onto the front endpaper, but hardly any beyond that.  Other than that, Near Fine condition.  

This institute is named after Sir Ronald Ross who linked the Anopheles mosquito to Malaria in 1926. By doing so he started the wheel turning to  save millions of lives.  

Why would the British still be interested in tropical diseases in 1962? Maybe it's like when Faisal says to Lawrence, ''The English have a great hunger for desolate places. I fear they hunger for Arabia.''

A short but excellent pocket size handbook on heat and insects, how to prevent, deal with and get rid of the diseases of ''desolate places.''
