About this Item

Modern morocco, new endpapers; dedication leaf detached and title page crudely repaired. Ownership signatures on fly-leaf. First edition. Warren records here the first application of anaesthesia during major surgery. On October 16, 1846 he excised a tumor from the neck of a twenty-year-old printer, Gilbert Abbott, assisted by William Morton, a Boston dentist who administered the ether. This event was to transform medical and surgical practice. Also included in this volume are a number of Warren's case histories, demonstrating the physiological effects of ether, and his monograph on chloroform.Warren (1778-1856) was a founder of both the Massachusetts General Hospital and The New England Journal of Medicine. The first American surgeon to operate for strangulated hernia, he also introduced the operation for aneurism. Bookseller Inventory # 10514
