Joseph Hume [1777-1855] was a Scottish doctor and a Radical Member of Parliament, born in Montrose, Angus. He moved to India in 1797 and was commissioned as a surgeon to an army regiment. He was able to take up work as an interpreter and commissary-general owing to his knowledge of the Indian language. After resigning and returning home in 1808, he traveled around England and Europe before entering politics as MP for Weymouth, Dorset. He became acquainted with John Mill and the philosophical reformers of the school of Jeremy Bentham. Thereafter he devoted himself to political activism, embracing such causes as improving the life of the working classes and trade union reform. He was especially known for holding the feet of Chancellors of the Exchequer to the fire, challenging every item of public expenditure, exercising a check on extravagance and causing the word "retrenchment" to be added to the Radical program of "peace and reform".

69 King, Lester, M.D. (d. 2002). Pathologist and senior editor of the Journal of the American Medical Association. TYPED LETTER TO PSYCHIATRIST ARTHUR N. FOXE SIGNED BY PATHOLOGIST AND SENIOR EDITOR OF THE JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN MEDICAL JOURNAL LESTER S. KING, M.D.
Chicago, IL: December 13, 1966. 1966. Very good Signed
- Two paragraphs typed on a 10-7/8 inch high by 8-1/2 inch wide sheet of Journal of the American Medical Association letterhead with King's name printed as Senior Editor at the top. Signed "Lester S King" above his typed name and "Book Review Editor". There is some light creasing to the right edge of the letter & there is a tiny chip to the left edge at one of the folds. The letter is stapled to a carbon copy of Foxe's letter. Folded twice for mailing. Very good.

King writes to Foxe who has submitted a book on skating for review. "Your little book on skating is indeed a gem. But its relevance to medicine is, I am afraid, rather remote. And since we do not have room for even half of all the medical books we receive, I am afraid we cannot be justified in reviewing it in our pages."

Freudian psychiatrist and expert on criminology Arthur N. Foxe was an avid collector of skating books. He wrote books on skating and also a bibliography of skating books.

Pathologist, historian and author Lester S. King [d. 2002] was a graduate of Harvard Medical School. He was diplomate of the American Board of Pathology and was on the faculty of the University of Illinois and the University of Chicago. He was a senior editor of the Journal of the American Medical Association and served a term as president of the American Association for the History of Medicine.

First edition.

Kuru, like mad cow disease, is an infection of the brain that destroys the nervous system of its victims. It flourished in Papua, New Guinea among the Fore, a people still living in a Stone Age culture who had until recently practiced ritual cannibalism, eating the brains of the dead as part of their funeral feasts. Dr. Robert Klitzman helped establish links between this practice and kuru, which also led to a better understanding of mad cow disease. Klitzman spent months in Papua, New Guinea, tracking down Fore patients suffering from Kuru and overcoming their resistances and suspicions in order to study how the disease was transmitted. Dust jacket present. First Edition.
