About this Item

Woodward, Joseph Janvier (1833-84). Reports on the extent and nature of the materials available for the preparation of a medical and surgical history of the Rebellion. [2], 166pp. 5 plates, 2 charts, 2 full-page unpaginated illustrations. Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott, 1866. 312 x 237 mm. Modern quarter morocco, cloth boards. Light toning but very good. First Edition of what is essentially the prospectus of The Medical and Surgical History of the War of the Rebellion (1870-88), the magisterial six-volume set that has been called "the first comprehensive American medical book" and "one of the most remarkable works ever published on military medicine" (Garrison-Morton.com 2171). This scarce report, written by one of the Medical and Surgical History's co-authors, is not listed in Rutkow's comprehensive bibliographical History of Surgery in the United States 1775-1900. Woodward's report, issued as Circular No. 6 of the War Department, Surgeon-General's Office, contains a detailed illustrated summary of the wartime medical and surgical data available in the Surgeon-General's office on such topics as gunshot wounds, amputations, excisions, camp diseases, military ambulances, mortality rates from disease and injury, and hospital construction and organization. The illustrations for the Medical and Surgical History represent a landmark in American medical illustration; several of these excellent plates are included in the present Report, including duotone lithographs of a gunshot wound and an amputation at the hip, a chromolithograph of a section of intestine showing the pathology of "typho-malarial fever," and a lithograph done after a photomicrograph of a section of ulcerated colon.
