Modern Art Leather. First Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. xiv, 580p. A near fine ex-library copy from the Newcastle Infirmary Medical Library with their small stamp on the title and several other pages. "The present is much more than a monograph on his discovery of acupressure. He presents a historical survey of the methods of surpressing haermorrhage from the works of Fabricus, Galen, Guy de Chauliac, John of Gaddesden, Pare and many others, with illustrations. In a long appendix (the work extends to 550 pages) he discusses metallic sutures, local anaesthetics and prophylactic surgery. The book concludes with a remarkable letter from a colleague, Professor Wilson, on the terrors of a surgical operation in 1842 (before the use of anaesthetics)." (Dawson 187.2546.)
