This is a textbook and manual for students studying nursing produced at the end of the 19th Century by W.B. Saunders of Philadelphia. The book is presumed to have originally belonged to Elizebeth S Crame as her name appears on the top and bottom text block and the front flyleaf contains the following in pencil "Elizebeth S Crame Orange Memorial Hospital Training School for Nurses." This book also contains student notes both on the back flyleaf pages and on page 319 (unphotographed). Additionally, there was a scrap of notepaper found between pages 34 and 35 containing script words written in what appears to be ink from a quill pen (or similar writing style).
13.5 x 2.6 X 19.7
All measurements were taken in centimeters. Measurements are listed as “length by width by height” or “height by diameter” unless otherwise noted.
