Hi all,

For your summer entertainment (and for the historians/anthropologists/med
students out there), may I present --

the Dr. Spock of the late 19th century, L. Emmett Holt

http://pds.lib.harvard.edu/pds/view/6309975
(this book sold zillions of copies)

and a book on infant care published in 1854 by a different author, for
comparison's sake.

Only on a Harvard email list would you get spam of such high quality!!

enjoy,
Christine
(who is working on a Harvard libraries digitization project)
