"HITLER AS SEEN BY HIS DOCTORS"
Fascinating printed report, 47pp. legal folio, [n.p., Military Intelligence Service Center], Nov. 29, 1945, a classified report containing a highly-detailed compilation of data obtained from Adolf Hitler's six chief physicians, along with ten x-rays of various views of Hitler's skull and several EEGs. The report is the result of interrogations of doctors Theodore Morrell, Erwine Giesing, Waletr Loehlein, Karl Weber, A. Nissle and E. Brinkmann who each specialized in different areas of treatment. The report opens with a complete physical description of Hitler and his medical history, with neurological data, spinal root functions, psychiatric observations, etc. The report includes many startling revelations - and leaves much out. Some examples: no mention is made of the extensive use of cocaine to treat Hitler's sinuses and throat ailments; he suffered from uncontrollable flatulence and was treated with pills containing strychnine; Morrell's believe that Hitler had relations with Eva Braun; injections of extracts of seminal vesicles, testis and prostata of young bulls; rapid coronary sclerosis detected; and much more. First three pages detached and quite chipped, else balance very good. Obviously, multiple copies of this report were prepared, but this is the first such example we have seen.
