Cry and the Covenant, 1949 edition
Published by Signet
4.5"x7", 432p, vintage used copy, some wear and tear but in not bad condition all things considered
Ummmmm this historical fiction is weirdly relevant right now. It's based on the life of Ignaz Semmelweis (1818-1865), an Austrian-Hungarian physician known for his research into puerperal fever and his advances in medical hygiene. He struggles to prove to his fellow doctors that if THEY WOULD ONLY WASH THEIR GOD DAMN HANDS, they would save the lives of many mothers. This vintage copy is from 1949. Now go wash your god damn hands.
