Scoundrel, comedian, conman, or healer? Dr. Albert Adams was a real bigger-than-life character whose unconventional treatment methods in the early 20th century got him and some of his practitioners into hot water.
Abrams (1863–1924) was an American doctor, well known during his life for inventing machines which he claimed could diagnose and cure any disease. Challenged from the very beginning about his claims, it was conclusively demonstrated at the end of his life, and again shortly after his death, that his claims were false and deceptive by design.
In 1900 he penned this supposed account of some of his medical adventures. It is both ridiculous and hilarious at the same time. It's difficult to know if Abrams meant this to be comical but one look at the self-satisfied expression on the cover of this book makes one believe he was in on the joke.
