About this Item

With 9 lithographed plates (2 chromolithographs); wood engraved text illustrations. Half morocco over marbled boards; front blank leaf lacking, large library label on first paste-down, paper is brittle and occasionally chipped on a few fore-edges. First edition of this historic landmark in urology. In 1869 Simon performed the first successful intentional nephrectomy on a woman patient. That date marks the beginning of renal surgery which he here describes in great detail in Volume I. The second volume, issued five years after the first, treats the subject of kidney surgery on both injured and diseased kidney. He had proved that one healthy kidney can take over the entire excretion process. The illustrations are remarkable.Simon (1824-1876) was a distinguished German surgeon who first served as a military physician. He specialized in the fields of gynecology, orthopedics and military surgery publishing a well known work on gunshot wounds. As professor of surgery at Rostock he published monographs on gynaecological plastic surgery as well as numerous other literary works in many areas of surgery. Bookseller Inventory # 13221
