A doctoral thesis presented to the Facultad de Medicina de Valencia. The book is a legal and medical study of tattoos, notable for the section of outstanding original photographs of tattoos, including neck tattoos, religious tattoos, erotic tattoos, etc. The bibliography, listing 259 articles and books, is a valuable reference for little known tattoo works, especially articles found in medical and criminology reviews.
Due to the nature of the publication, likely a work with limited distribution. OCLC locates three holdings worldwide,but none in the US.
Very good with some minor rubbing and light foxing to wraps, and some bumping to extremities. Item #24685
