FIRST EDITION. 4 to. Orig. gilt black leather (likely a presentation binding), all edges gilt, neatly and expertly rebacked. 87, (1, errata) pp. Five chromolithographed plates by J. Bien (1), F. Moras (3), and L.N. Rosenthal. (1) + 4 lithographed plates by J. Bien, one each from photographed plates by J. Bien, two after photographs by William Bell, and one after a photograph by Morgan + numerous text woodcuts. Minor dampstains in outer margins; a very good, crisp copy. This is U.S. Army assistant surgeon, George A. Otis' (1830-81) first surgical case report (Circular No.7) derived from Civil War experiences. As curator of the Army Medical Museum, he had began in 1865 to publish photographs (with an associated text, see: Rutkow GS62 and GS63) of surgical cases and specimens. The present ".monograph is divided into four sections: 'A historical summary'; 'An account of individual cases'; 'A citation of the opinions of surgeons'; and 'A discussion of results'. There are thirty figures, but the strength of this work is in the spectacular plates, five of which are chromolithographs. More important, some of the plates are engravings taken from actual photographs. These are among the earliest examples of such a process in American surgical texts." [Rutkow OR18 - figs. 84 (full-page) and 86 are reproductions of plates]. Kelly & Burrage, pp. 924-925. Orr 1417. Cordasco 60-1350. Not in the other usual medical collections.
