About this Item

Original cloth-backed decorated boards, gilt spine, front hinge cracked; half-title detached, some offset to title from newspaper article by Helmuth tipped in to verso of half-title. Inscribed on title page by the author to E.M.B. Van Allen on Feb. 24, 1893. First edition. "These verses have been inspired by an Æsculapian Muse. They are all medical in character, and have all appeared in print. They are collected now with the hope that they may recall those pleasant re-unions at which they were given, and which from time to time serve to lighten the responsible labor of the busy doctor." Helmuth (1833-1902) commenced his medical studies under the tutelage of his uncle, Dr. William S. Helmuth, then Professor of the Theory and Practice of Medicine in the Homeopathic Medical College of Pennsylvania. He first became a professor of anatomy at the Homeopathic Medical College, and later moved to St. Louis where he helped start the Homeopathic Medical College of Missouri. He was elected President of the American Institute of Homeopathy, and after moving to New York became chair of Surgery at the New York Homeopathic Medical College, and was appointed Surgeon to the Hahnemann Hospital as well as the New York Surgical Hospital. He was the author of many medical as well as literary works including "Scratches" of a surgeon; Surgery and its adaptation into Homeopathic practice; A System of surgery, and Yellowstone Park and how it was named, the text of which is tipped into this book.
