New York: Columbia University Press, 1935. Cabot, Hugh (1872-1945). The doctor's bill. xvi, 313, pp. New York: Columbia University Press, 1935. 228 x 154 mm. Original blind-stamped cloth, gilt-lettered spine, spine a bit faded. Very good. Presentation Copy, inscribed by Cabot on the front endpaper: "John Raaf with kindest regards Hugh Cabot." First Edition. Cabot, Professor of Surgery at the Mayo Clinic, was a strong advocate of group medical practice and of establishing a partnership between the federal government, medical schools and hospitals to provide health care to low-income and poor Americans. He published this book on medical economics in the middle of the Great Depression, a time when the government was considering expanding the Social Security Act to include some form of national health insurance (a move adamantly opposed by the American Medical Association). The recipient of this copy was most likely neurological surgeon John E. Raaf (1905-2000), who interned at the Mayo Clinic in the 1930s. Garrison-Morton.com 8619.
