Contemporary quarter black calf over marbled boards, gilt-ruled spine and gilt-stamped title; spine ends and boards rubbed. Ownership marks of W.H. Price (January 1868) on front endpaper. Very good. . This post-Civil War medical journal contains many fascinating articles, including a report on the use of nitrous oxide as an anesthetic. E. Andrews, M.D. "Considerable stir has been made among the dentists of late by the introduction of a new anesthetic, which is nothing else than the old-fashioned laughing gas of the chemists. As is usual in such matters, the quacks of tooth-pulling, make the most noise about it, while the respectable men use it with much less enthusiasmů It is probably, therefore, that nitrous oxide will be permanently established as a dental anesthetic, but will only be occasionally used in general surgery." [pp. 78-81]. An extensive article on orthopedic surgery, by Dr. David Prince, deals with deformities of the lower limbs and methods to correct them; both the deformities and the appliances are shown in several illustrations.
