Published by J.B. Lippincott, Philadelphia, in 1862.
5 x 7.5 inches. Containing 120 pages
This rare surgical text was one of those heavily relied on by surgeons and medical personnel during the Civil War. Focusing on gunshot wounds and injuries the text outlines the operations necessary to save the soldiers life on the field of battle. Written around battlefield injuries it is no small wonder that the medical text was so highly prized.
A scarce medical title to say the least. Right up there with Appia's Ambulance Surgeon.
