About this Item

230 x 162 mm. 8vo. xxvii, [3], 551, [1 blank], [ads, 24] pp. Frontis. port. of Ephraim McDowell, 56 figs., index. Original brick red cloth, gilt spine; re-backed. Ex library bookplate of Yale University Library, rubber stamps of the New York Hospital and the New Haven Medical Association. Crainz rubber stamp on title. Very good. FIRST EDITION. This is Edmund Randolph Peaslee's most important work. It is a comprehensive treatise on all the known facts concerning the anatomy, pathology, diagnosis, and treatment of ovarian cysts. Especially concerned with the operation of ovariotomy which Peaslee advocated in New York in 1864. He made no notable additions to the technique of the operation but compiled carefully and critically practically everything that was known of it, producing a book which was for many years a standard text. It undoubtedly removed many of the objections against ovariotomy which were entertained at that time by the profession, and, although long since displaced by more modern books, retains some historical value, for in it Peaslee established the priority of Ephraim McDowell in the methodical and successful removal by surgery of an ovarian cyst.
