I'd warn that so old an edition (half a century!) of Medicine for Mountaineering is woefully out of date and will contain many practices either no longer medically approved or now considered actually harmful. I had one from the 1970s that I recently tossed in the recycling, at the advice of my emergency room physician son-in-law. For historical purposes, it might be fun to compare this with a current edition to see how much medical practices have changed.

All the others sound like a wonderful bargain for anyone interested! Many of them are classics!

Pika, I may do the same for a bunch of my old hiking guidebooks. since I'm trying to get rid of "too much stuff" in my house. Please let me know if your giveaway is successful!
