Hunger Disease; Studies by Jewish Physicians in the Warsaw Ghetto.
by [Warsaw Ghetto] WINICK, Myron (1929-2012) (editor).
New York:: John Wiley & Sons, 1979., 1979. 8vo. xiv, 261,  pp. 11 black and white photographic plates, 50 tables, charts, index. Black blind- and gilt-stamped cloth, dust-jacket. Near fine. ISBN: 0471050032 First edition in English, translated from the Polish by Martha Osnos, who escaped from the Ghetto and made her way to Stanford University. Osnos was also a friend of Janusz Korczak. / This translation of the starvation studies performed at the Warsaw Ghetto is from the Polish manuscript, rather than the French publication of the American Joint Distribution Committee published in 1946. This accounts for slight variations in a comparison of the French and English translations. Winick was a noted nutritionist and physician, and was Director of the Institute of Human Nutrition, Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons. / ["on front paper"] I have removed every one of these references of the location of signatures and bookplates – they are by default always on the front pastedown or front free endpaper [ffep], thus it is implied. State the exception, not the normal… i.e., if the author's or owner's name is on the back endpaper, then say where, especially if on the title or elsewhere in the textblock. - Palmer H.
