About this Item

The Evolution of Surgical Instruments: An Illustrated History from Ancient Times to the Twentieth Century is the first comprehensive work on the subject published in over sixty years and arguably the most important general history of surgical instruments ever published. The only prior work on the subject, C. J. S. Thompsons The History and Evolution of Surgical Instruments (1942) attempted to cover the entire history in only 113 pages. Elisabeth Bennions Antique Medical Instruments (1979) concentrated chiefly upon the aesthetic aspects of medical and surgical instruments to 1870. James Edmonson's comprehensive history, American Surgical Instruments (1997), focused on instruments manufactured in the United States up to 1900. Foreward by James M. Edmonson, PhD. xviii, 510 pp. 579 illus., 30 in color. 8 1/2" 11". Index. Cloth, dust jacket, acid-free paper. ISBN 0-430405-86-2. Norman Surgery Series No. 12. 38632. Bookseller Inventory # 38632
