Toohey Medicine for Nurses by Arnold Bloom (£19.00)Publisher: E & S Livingstone — 1967Binding: Hardback Condition: Good+. Gently bruised at head & tail of spine and corners. Gently faded at the spine. Previous owners inscription to ffep.Description: With a chapter on Psychological Medicine by Henry R. Rollin. Illustrated with colour photographs and charts. 8th Edition. From the preface to the 1st Edition: “In writing this textbook of medicine for nurses I have tried to make it as comprehensive as possible so that it may not only help the nurse during her training but also serve as a reference book afterwards. The basic physiological and pathological facts which are needed for the understanding of the various diseases and their treatment have accordingly been dealt with in some detail. Moreover, summaries of the more difficult chapters are included in order to stress the most significant points. In addition, other summaries have been given at the end of most chapters of the more important drugs and routine procedures used in the major diseases.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾".

Coming Out of the Kitchen: Women Beyond the Home by Una A. Robertson (£11.50)Publisher: Sutton Publishing — 2000Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0750919930]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Slight ruffling at the head of the spine to the dust wrapper otherwise a very well presented copy.Description: Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Until relatively recently it was generally assumed that marriage was the only career for a woman, after which she was confined to the home, immersed in her domestic duties. Achievement in all spheres was, it was supposed, the preserve of men only. In fact, as this new book clearly reveals, there were numerous women who, with minimal education, little financial independence and only basic domestic skills, pursued active and highly successful roles in the world outside the home. Well illustrated and beautifully presented, Coming Out of the Kitchen is the perfect celebration of three centuries of women's achievement, redressing the balance with more traditional history and scuppering for good the notion that the role of women began and ended with marriage. It will be essential reading for women, and men, everywhere.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 6¼". Red boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 216 pages.

Practical Nursing and Anatomy for Pupil Nurses by Jane Forrest (£9.50)Publisher: Edward Arnold — 1968Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with wear and loss at the spine ends and corners, several short closed tears.Description: 1st Reprint. [First: 1966] From the flap: “The aim of this book is to provide a good foundation of basic facts which will guide the pupil and enrolled nurse to a wider knowledge and understanding of the care of the patient. Anatomy and Physiology is not treated as a separate, rather dull subject, but is shown to be closely allied to the diseases and treatments which the nurse encounters daily on the wards. The information contained in the book is presented as simply as possible with explanations of technical terminology given where necessary. A large number of cross references are given as a further aid to study. Nurses should be encouraged to get into the habit of using them, since they establish links which connect one fact with another until a more complete picture of the subject is obtained. “Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾".

With style, learning and wit, Gibbon takes the reader through the history of Europe from the second century AD to the fall of Constantinople in 1453 — an enthralling account by ‘the greatest of the historians of the Enlightenment’. This edition includes Gibbon’s footnotes and quotations, here translated for the first time, together with brief explanatory comments, a precis of the chapters not included, 16 maps, a glossary, and a list of emperors.”Notes: Size: B Format (7¾" x 5¼").

No More Bullies: For Those Who Wound or are Wounded by Frank Peretti (£6.50)Publisher: W Publishing Group — 2000Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0849943361]Condition: Very Good.Description: From the cover: “Teasing. Bullying. Peer Abuse. Call it what you will, but it’s far from harmless. If you’ve ever been there, you’ve never forgotten how it feels. It’s being undersized or oversized or less than beautiful. It’s knowing you are vulnerable and that someone is ready to take advantage of your weakness. It’s the crowd you never wanted to join. And Frank Peretti is a member too. In this remarkable book (previously titled The Wounded Spirit), Frank Peretti shares his own experiences, empathizing with victims and addressing the problem of violence in schools today. With conviction and compassion, he urges: Those being abused to speak up and seek help; The ‘strong’ kids to stand up and protect the weak; Those In authority to take notice — and action; Everyone to stop thinking of abuse as ‘kids being kids’; The compelling message of No More Bullies is that we all — bullies and victims alike — can find healing and forgiveness for the anguish and torment associated with this rampant epidemic in our communities.”Notes: Size: B Format (7¾" x 5¼"). 193 pages.
