Dealer Notes
“The 20 engraved plates are remarkable fine, two of them illustrating the chapter “Of the Posture and Situation into which Children are to be put; when they are to be Cut” are interesting both as extremely early examples of specialised surgery for children and as illustrating the difficulties of surgical techniques before the advent of anaesthetics. An important work in the history of urological science.”—Dawsons, 187.
