About this Item

Erichsen, John Eric (1818-96). Notes of lectures on surgery by Mr. Erichsen. Univ. College. Session 1859-60. Manuscript notes in the hand of a student, Thomas F[ould] H. Green, who signed his name on the title-leaf. 145pp., mostly written on rectos with occasional notes on some versos. Also: Quain, Richard (1816-98) and Erichsen. Clinical lectures (surgical) by Mr. Quain and Mr. Erichsen. Univ. Coll. Hospital Oct. 1856 to [left incomplete]. Manuscript notes in Green's hand, signed by him at the foot of the title. [5], 15pp., written on rectos and versos. 221 x 185 mm. Both sets of notes contained in a single bound volume of approx. 206 leaves (412 pages), remaining pages blank. Half calf, marbled boards, front cover detached, light wear. Very good. Stamp and bookplate of the Birmingham Medical Institute. Erichsen was surgeon to University College Hospital and professor of surgery at University College; one of his students was Joseph Lister, who served as Erichsen's house surgeon at the Hospital in the early 1850s. Erichsen was the author of The Science and Art of Surgery (1853; 5602), the most popular textbook on the subject for many years; he also published On Railway and Other Injuries of the Nervous System (1866; 4538.1), the first book to discuss the injuries now known as whiplash. He enjoyed a worldwide reputation as a surgeon, and was an excellent lecturer and clinical teacher. These manuscript notes were written by Thomas Fould H. Green, a medical student at University College who won certificates of honor in anatomy and pathological anatomy in 1858 (see the Medical Times and Gazette for August 7, 1858, page 152). Green's manuscript notebook contains both notes of Erichsen's surgical lectures (pp. 1-145) and the clinical lectures on surgery given by Erichsen and Richard Quain, special professor of clinical surgery at University College Hospital. Erichsen's surgical lectures cover the treatment of wounds-both by wound type and by the part of the body injured-as well as the treatment of fractures, asphyxia, gangrene, etc. The notes on Erichsen and Quain's clinical lectures, which Green apparently abandoned part way through the term, cover clubfoot, varicose veins, calculus, aneurysm, abscess, forearm amputation, cut throat, retention of urine and diseases of the breast.
