OSLER'S THOUGHTS ON THE CONTRASTS BETWEEN THE CONTRIBUTION OF SCIENCE TO MEDICINE AND TO THE GREAT WAR. 9 1/4 inches tall hardcover, red cloth binding, gilt title to cover and spine, 39 pp. Light wear to cover and spine edges, previous owner signature and bookseller handstamp to front endpaper, otherwise unmarked and very good in custom archival mylar cover. Only two years after Osler delivered this address, his only son, Revere, was killed by artillery in France. Osler never recovered from his grief, and died two years later.
