A newfound book
Enrico Anglesio’s book "I tumori del mediastino" (Vallecchi Editore Firenze, 1949), in the Collection of Updates in Practical Medicine directed by Professor C Frugoni, appeared in the online sale catalogue of an antique bookshop in Catania (Italy). This was an unexpected find and a welcome surprise since the Piedmont Cancer Registry library had no record of it, nor did the Anglesio family.
The book is now available for consultation at the Piedmont Cancer Registry library.
