Book Details

ABERNETHY (John). Lectures on Anatomy, Surgery, and Pathology; including Observations on the Nature and Treatment of Local Disease. Delivered at St. Bartholomew's Hospital.1828

London: Printed by C. Smith; and sold by James Bulcock, First edition, 8vo (238 x 145 mm) [4], 5-580pp., a little light foxing in places, last few leaves lightly waterstained, original boards, uncut, neatly rebacked, printed paper label. Abernethy was a skilled surgeon and an exceptionally popular lecturer. His lectures in anatomy, physiology, surgery, and pathology were considered unequalled. They were, in fact, so popular that they were taken down by fast writers and published in the Lancet in 1826 and 1827 - whereby the publisher was sued by Abernethy. Complying with student's wishes, he published Lectures on anatomy, surgery and pathology... in 1828 and Lectures on the theory and practice of surgery in 1830. He became the first to tie successfully the external iliac artery for aneurism, and he ligated the common carotid. Wellcome, 11, p.4.
