About this Item

First edition. Octavo in dark brown cloth with spine lettered in gilt. 2 pp. publisher's ads at front; xvii+396 pp. plus 8 pp. section of contents of "The Scapel" magazine and two final pp. of publisher's ads. Photographic portrait of the author tipped as frontispiece. The title is somewhat of a misnomer: "photographs" in this instance meaning a collection of pieces from the mid-19th century magazine "The Scalpel" illustrative of the American medical profession . The group was from a series published in the 1850s titled "Scenes in the Practice of a New York Surgeon"; additionaal pieces include"Abortionism", "Small Pox: Inoculation--Vaccination--What Are They?" , "Scenes In A Mediacl Student's Life", "A Vision of The Damned--What Becomes of Doctors and Apothecaries When They Die?", "Early Treatment of Children", "Fashionable Dress: Its Influence on the Health and Dignity of Woman" and many other facsinating glimpses. A tight example, 1867 ownership inscription on first blanl; pages somewhat embrowned and with some light spotting to the cloth and narrow loss along the upper rear gutter. Quite scarce.
