Los Angeles January 12, 1967. Tense with excitement, a team of dedicated men gathered about the still body of Dr. Harold Green. Their equipment was ready, their plan worked out. Now at last they could put their revolutionary new technique to the test. At last they could freeze the first man. Amazing yet completely factual, here is the graphic, fully detailed, first-hand account of this milestone event....It is a clear explanation of perhaps the most important scientific breakthrough in history: cryonics, the science of freezing human beings for future resurrection.
Paperback, 159 pages. Some margin notes and an interesting, dated, note on the inside back cover re: the repair and replacement of broken extremities by freezing. Good condition; the cover is worn, with a tear on the back cover. Small water stain on the upper outside corner of the pages. No mold. All pages present. UN558 $6.00 Click Here to Order
