About this Item

Sims, James Marion (1813-83). Clinical notes on uterine surgery. 8vo. xi [1], 401 [1]pp. Text wood-engravings. New York: William Wood & Co., 1866. 227 x 144 mm. Original cloth, faded at spine and edges, light wear to extremities. Light browning, but very good. First American Edition of G-M 6057. Sims was the leading American gynecologist of his time. He developed operations for repair of vesico-vaginal fistula and for amputation of the cervix, rediscovered the knee-chest position ("Sims position"), invented the duckbill vagina speculum ("Sims speculum"), and founded the Women's Hospital of the State of New York, now the Obstetric and Gynecological Division of St. Luke's Hospital. In his Clinical Notes Sims discussed techniques of uterine surgery and pathological conditions requiring surgical intervention; he also reported his pioneering work on the treatment of infertility, including his studies of sperm survival in the vagina and cervix, and his investigations of artificial insemination. Sympathetic to the Confederate cause but unwilling to fight for the South, Sims divided his time between London and Paris during the Civil War. Clinical Notes was originally serialized in Lancet, 1864-1865, and the first book-form edition appeared in London in 1866. D.A.B. Rutkow GY12. Speert, Obstetrics and Gynecology in America, pp. 219-221. 15428. Bookseller Inventory # 15428
