8vo. vi, 374, [1] ads. Original embossed floral cloth, leather lettering-piece on spine. "In his day Liston was the most dexterous and resourceful surgeon in the British Isles. He was the first in the country to remove the scapula and the first - on 21 Dec. 1846 - to perform a major operation with the aid of an anesthetic. Liston suggested the use of a mirror which could be used for viewing edematous tumors of the larynx" (Garrison-Morton-Norman 3328 and 5593, first edition London, 1837). Norris, who prepared the American edition, was a surgeon at the Pennsylvania Hospital. He writes in his preface that Liston's work "may be regarded as a summary of the practice of the first of British operative surgeons to the present day. the Editor has restricted himself to adding a few brief notices of the manner in which some of the more common surgical affections are treated with us, at the same time that he has called attention to certain points which have been passed over lightly by the author, and embodied with it the details of several American operations, which from their originality or rarity have appeared to him worthy of notice." Cordasco 30-0563. Slight wear to binding, bookplate on pastedown; foxed From the Collection of Allan B. Kirsner, M.D. N° de ref. de la librería 402060
