About this Item

Lister, Joseph (1827-1912). Effects of the antiseptic system of treatment upon the salubrity of a surgical hospital. In: Lancet 1 (1870), pp. 4-6; 40-42. Whole volume, 4to. [2] 932pp. Text illustrations. London: John James Croft, 1870. 267 x 191 mm. Modern quarter cloth. Light soiling to verso title, but very good. First Edition. Garrison-Morton 1619. Lister's first attempt to summarize his experiences with the antiseptic system at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary. His results were exemplary-six deaths in the forty amputations performed between 1867 and 1869, as opposed to sixteen deaths in the thirty-five amputations performed in the previous two-year period-despite the fact that two wards of the Infirmary were situated over a mass graveyard filled with the coffins of cholera victims. Lister's paper was also issued as a separate publication the same year. Norman 1371 (separate publication). Fisher, Joseph Lister, pp. 172-73. Bookseller Inventory # 34489
