ULTRA RARE PRIVATE PRESS OF "A Visit to Dave Elman Classrooms in Medical Hypnosis". These 10 boxes are organized in "Lessons", numbered 1 through 10. Boxes 1-6 & 8 have 3 LPs each, and Boxes 7, 9, and 10 have 4 LPs each for a total of 33 LPs. I have confirmed these are complete because of the way the LP sides are numbered: one is numbered side 1 & 6, another 2 & 5, and the third, 3 &4 for boxes with 3 LPs, and 1 & 8, etc for boxes with 4 LPs. I don't know if there are further "Lessons" - I can't find a lot about this set online, just general information on Dave Elman, provided below, and VERY LIMITED AVAILABILITY OF LESSON BOXES GENERALLY, MUCH LESS A 10-BOX COLLECTION! The boxes are in EXCELLENT CONDITION, with tops and bottoms attached, very little edge wear, no splits. Box 7 top and bottom covers are a bit flattened, no other boxes flattened. Each LP stored in a plain white inner sleeve with a loose plastic sleeves. THEY LOOK UNPLAYED with no scratches seen on clean vinyl, I'll grade NM.
BONUS: There was a 10" 78 RPM in one of the boxes, "Medical Relaxation by Dave Elman", also in NM condition.
On Dave Elman from Wikipedia: "Dave Elman (May 6, 1900 - 5 December 1967) was a noted American radio host, comedian, and songwriter, and important figure in the field of hypnosis.
