London:: Kegan Paul, Trench, Trubner & Co., 1930., 1930. 8vo. xii, 169,  pp. 15 figs. [some color], index. Greenish-blue gilt-stamped cloth. Ownership inscriptions of Francis Graham Crookshank, and possibly the source of the inscription: "F. G. Crookshank 57a Wimpole St./Dr. Gibson 27 Banbury Rd. Oxford," with detailed marginalia and underlining throughout. Near fine. Mycoses is a disease caused by infection with a fungus, such as ringworm or thrush. PROVENANCE: Francis Graham Crookshank (1873-1933) British epidemiologist, medical and psychological writer, and fellow of the Royal College of Physicians. He was also a eugenicist and scientific racist, and is best remembered today as the author of the pseudo-scientific tract The Mongol in Our Midst: A study of Man and his Three Faces, in which he argued that Down Syndrome was the result of race mixing. Crookshank's ink manuscript notes in this copy (mostly from the beginning to page 48) are somewhat remarkable in their pugnacity—his principle interest appears to be critiquing Gibson's work as well as the man himself, rather than actually learning from the text.
