Description: Mobile, AL. Gryphon Edition Books. All books in this Gryphon medical series are fully bound in leather and are in Fine, unread condition. The covers are leather and gilded on the covers and spine. Their spines are hubbed in the fine European binding tradition, and the page edges are gilded to resist damage from moisture and dust.

Some of these volumes have an owners bookplate. Most of these Gryphon Edition books are limited editions that are now either rare or impossible to find.
