Descripción:

FIRST EDITION. 8 vo. New linen cloth with lea. label. xiv, 580 pp. Text woodcuts. A little browning; a very good copy. James Y. Simpson (1811-70) ".the leading obstetrician of his time and a member of the faculty at the University of Edinburgh, introduced the use of chloroform as an anesthetic after experimenting with ether and finding that it had some undesired side affects." (Heirs of Hippocrates, p.532). "Simpson's chief claim to fame was unquestionably his introduction of chloroform anesthesia in obstetrics, but this was not his only achievement. He introduced iron wire sutures, .the long obstetrical forceps, 'acupressure' - the method of arresting hemorrhage by drawing together the edges of the wound with needles inserted into the tissue, and dilation of the cervix uteri for diagnostic purposes." (R.H. Major, 'Hist. med.', 1954, pp.820-21). Though Simpson's acupressure technique, intended to replace ligature in amputations and other surgeries, failed to achieve full success, his treatise offered much ancillary matter on the occlusion of blood vessels, and on surgery in general, including a chapter on anesthesia.

Descripción Adam and Charles Black, Edinburgh, 1864. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Near Fine. First Edition. 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.) Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Nº de ref. de la librería 004970

Descripción Edinburgh: Adam & Charles Black, 1864., 1864. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Very Good. 1st Edition. xiv, 580 pp; 42 figs. Original cloth, recently rebacked with original spine preserved. Ink stamp on title page. A few leaves carelessly opened. First Edition. Simpson's book is "one of the most intelligent studies of the problems of wound healing to be published before 1867, when Lister announced his discoveries. Apart from his exposure of the perils of burying septic ligatures he propounded sound ideas about wound closure and dressings. He stressed the necessity of careful apposition of wounds without tension, of closing dead spaces, of irrigating wounds to remove all dead or foreign tissue before attempting closure, of achieving complete haemastasis, or providing dependent drainage when necessary and of absolute rest for a wound. 'All touching and fingering of the sides or vicinities of recent wounds should be avoided and forbidden' was one of his aphorisms. He scorned the use of multiple dressings and packs but advocated that wounds should be left exposed to the air to let nature do the healing. Such principles were important steps towards aseptic surgery and remain as important today as ever" (Shepherd, Simpson and Syme of Edinburgh, pp. 173 and 185). Nº de ref. de la librería 11668

"Johannes Avetician Calantarients was . . . born in 1838 in Armenia. Calantarients was educated at Constantinople (Istanbul). He came to England aged 20, to study at St Aidan's Theological College, Birkenhead. However, after 3 years he took up medical studies at University College, London and in Edinburgh.
