About this Item

Development of the First Comprehensive Treatise on Hand Surgery Kanavel, Allen B. (1874-1938). Infections of the hand. Set of the first 6 editions. 8vo. Text illustrations. Philadelphia: Lea & Febiger, 1912-33. 234 x 150 mm. Original cloth, a little worn & shaken, hinges in 3rd ed. cracked, edition numbers written on spine in white chalk. Light browning, ownership signatures and annotations in a few volumes, but good to very good. The first six editions of Garrison-Morton 4386.01, the first comprehensive treatise on hand surgery. Kanavel developed the method of forcible injection of radio-opaque material into tendon sheaths and fascial spaces of the hand; this enabled him to find a definite and constant pattern in the way that infectious material spread from sheath to space, and to drain infected areas without damage to important structures. Kanavel's classic work "did more to awaken the surgical conscience to the anatomic intricacies of hand surgery than did almost any other single contribution" (Bick). Each successive edition of Kanavel's work bears substantial revisions; together these first six editions show the evolution of hand surgery over its first twenty years. Boyes, On the Shoulders of Giants, pp. 170-72. Bookseller Inventory # 35907
