Malaria: What it means and how avoided.
$20.00 (AUD inc GST)
An interesting curio but definitely not a reference book of any substance!
By Joseph F Edwards
We originally bought this book because we thought it was a new title; we were wrong. It is in fact the re-release of a book that was written in 1881. The book is interesting in that it shows how people of that time viewed Malaria; but the information held in its pages is dead wrong.According to the author Malaria comes from bad air caused by rotting vegetable matter; gases from this rotting matter are breathed in and get into the blood and poison the organs; the disease has nothing to with symptoms of fevers and chills.
Mr Edwards does not use the word mosquito in any of the 81 pages of this book!
