"This is the Industrial Edition and it is intended for the worker in the industrial field. The present edition will appear in Polish, Lithuanian, Italian and Slovak, as well as in English, so that it may be read by the majority of miners. ... In a previous first-aid manual by one of the authors the importance of learning the prevention of accidents was emphasized, and this is also done in the present book. Prevention is better than cure in injuries as well as in disease. It is hoped that if nothing further is learned from this book the reader will at least be led to use common care if not for his own sake for that of those who are dear to him." - Preface. The chapter on Industrial Accidents contains Railroad Injuries, Mining Injuries, Injuries of Factory and Workshop, Injuries from Electric Apparatus; and Hernia or Rupture. Pre-World War One first aid for industrial workers, in the spirit of the Progressive Era. ; xii, 175, 4 ad pages.
