Corish, M.D. and published by Medical Book Distributors, NY.  Measuring 9.75" high by 6.625" wide, each deep brown cover has heavy embellishment.  In a center rectangle on the front cover are the raised title and subtitle highlighted in gold and separated by an embossed caduceus.  This is surrounded by a highly decorated, embossed border of swirling leaves and abstractly filled rays.  The book cover has an embossed leather-like surface with a shield reading "Kingsport Press Inc" and "Kingskraft" in the bottom right hand corner.  The inside of both cover has a marbleized design in shades of brown.  The covers are no longer connected.  These 1931 Book Covers from Health Knowledge are in very good condition with only minor edge wear and a very slight warp.
