8vo, embossed leatherette covers. 256 pp. The Nichols Sanitorium had treated 3300 patients up to 1918, and by 1956 the list had grown to 70,000. Many medical doctors did not recognize the Sanitorium as a valid medical institution, but the thousands of people who came to Savannah as a last resort and almost without hope, and who left after treatment to live for many years in comfort, seemed to be sufficient proof that this place did relieve suffering and that it added years to the lives of those who were treated. Dr. Nichols died in September 1925 and the Sanitorium passed into the hands of his daughter. This memorial to his work is notable for the quality of the Roycroft's production and binding. Very good condition; some light stains on back cover and some minor edgewear. Interior is pristine.
