About this Item

Macewen, William (1848-1924). (1) Pyogenic infective diseases of the brain and spinal cord. 8vo. xxiv, 354pp. 37 plates & text illustrations. Glasgow: Maclehose, 1893. 225 145 mm. Original cloth, worn but sound, corners a little bent. Minor dust-soiling and fraying, but very good. Advertisement for Macewen's Atlas of Head Sections tipped to the front free endpaper. (2) Atlas of head sections. 4to. xiii pp., 53 copperplate engravings each with separate printed outline key, 4pp. (index). Glasgow: Maclehose, 1893. 280 x 220 mm. Original cloth. Minor foxing, otherwise fine. Signature of British surgeon George Grey Turner (1877-1951) on the front free endpaper. First Editions. Garrison-Morton 4872, 431 (Atlas). Cushing considered Macewen the "chief pioneer in craniocerebral surgery." His experience with meningitis, abscess of the brain and infective sinus thrombosis was summarized in his seminal Pyogenic Infective Diseases of the Brain and Spinal Cord of 1893, which gave sixty-five detailed cases together with operative procedures. His Atlas of Head Sections, published the same year, was intended to supplement and illustrate Pyogenic Infective Dseases. This copy of the Atlas was once owned by British surgeon George Grey Turner, for whom "Turner's sign"--local areas of bruising and induration of the skin about the navel and loins in hemorrhagic pancreatitis--is named.
