6 Evans, A. Margaret and Barker, C.A.V. CENTURY ONE: A HISTORY OF THE ONTARIO VETERINARY ASSOCIATION, 1874-1974.
Guelph, Ontario Self-published 1976 0969069000 Hard Cover Near Fine Very Good 
516 pp, 9 1/4" H. Pictorial endpapers, b&w photographs. "Few people appreciate the significant contribution made by veterinarians to the economic importance of the livestock industry, the quality of small animals and the control of diseases affecting public health throughout Canada. The increasing value of such work is largely due to the efforts of the profession itself, particularly in the province of Ontario. Human survival still depends on animals and animal products. To that close relationship the veterinarian brings the benefits of modern science; his professional skill and integrity today defend the economic and physical well-being of all citizens. In a fast-flowing but detailed narrative, the authors review the early years of the O.V.A., its emphasis on high ethical and scientific standards and a long struggle for adequate statutory recognition. These advances have been closely linked to the remarkable role of the Ontario Veterinary College throughout the century. The book also traces the rise of the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association to its position of national influence. In Canada, the profession is unique in that close collaboration with all levels of government is constantly required. The control and suppression of rabies is only one example - perhaps the best know to the public." Dust jacket has tiny tear/wrinkling at top of front hinge - archivally taped, minor soiling.

IRISH FOLK MEDICINE., Logan, Patrick.
8 Logan, Patrick. IRISH FOLK MEDICINE.
Belfast Appletree 1999 0862817676 / 9780862817671 Reprint Soft Cover Near Fine 
180 pp, 8vo (8 1/8" H). B&w illustrations. Related bookmark laid in. "Folk medicine was long practised in Ireland and has not completely died out. In many ways it has blended into the New Age interest in natural and non-invasive treatments and holistic medicine. The great mass of the population had no access to a doctor: the local wise woman or bonesetter was the only hope. But folk medicine, particularly before the rise of medical science in the nineteenth century, was always a curious blend of common-sense and nonsense. Practical observation, and natural cures, went hand in hand with useless and often dangerous remedies. To cure a child of dropsy by tying it up in a rope used to hang an innocent man was not likely to help. Whooping cough was not driven away by medicine made from sheep droppings boiled in milk. Dr Patrick Logan traces a comprehensive range of country cures, both for people and animals, practised in Ireland throughout the centuries. Some go back to early or pre-Christian times and beliefs. Others are much more recent and often perpetuate practices discarded by orthodox medicine. The entire book is a striking testimony to human ingenuity, optimism and endurance." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - minor rubbing on front cover.
