Submitter: I found this book at my local public library. They have 4 copies of this edition in their system. Its appears to be a 1977 printing of the 1963 original. Being an encyclopedia from 1977 should be reason enough to dump this book. One with outdated health topics? Yikes! There are plenty of current medical issues completely absent from this book: Aids, Ebola, Norovirus, etc. Interestingly there was no mention of the Swine Flu of 1976. This is what leaves me to believe this is just a reprint of the 1963 edition. Patrons need up-to-date medical advice! Time to let it go!
Holly: Oooh, this one ought to drive Mary absolutely bonkers! She just looooves old medical information in public libraries. Right next to career info, it’s her kryptonite. (Mine too. Please weed, people!)
