Philadelphia: Lea & Blanchard, 1845. Thick Quarto. Item #026095
A new edition from the enlarged and revised London edition. 519 pages, 54 leaves of plates, index. A work that became the standard though his strong disdain for ether in even the most extreme cases of pain made him the enemy of those who saw the value of relief versus the possibility of shock. A very good copy bound in contemporary calf, flat spine ruled in gilt, black morocco spine label gilt, some scattered foxing, lacks front fly leaf, contemporary owner's name.
