The Quebec-born graduate of Harvard Medical School seems to have created a drug-free home medical system based on positive mottos and exhortations to a healthy diet and deep breathing, all here gathered with ample grateful endorsements--including one from a man who knew a little something himself about the art of self-promotion and mail-order sales, Elbert Hubbard. Moras's system was of course widely advertised in popular journals and newspapers, starting in 1906 and appearing through about 1920. With an additional advertising leaf laid in at the rear of the pamphlet.

Price: $50.00
