Brown Hardcover with dark brown print. Very minor soiling to cover. "The authors pick a very wide range of surgeons to discuss, from ancient times to the 19th century. The book shows the range, inventiveness and often iron courage of the many pioneers who cut into unanesthetized human flesh, and braved the great agonies they caused with their knives in the quest to heal. They sought to end suffering but through suffering, offering the only hope which could be offered. In addition to short, very well-written and informative essays on each surgeon or surgical school, the authors present well-chosen exerpts from the original writings." review. Complete bibliography and fully indexed. Rare. ; 1961; Color Illustrations; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 587 pages
