About this Item

305 x 244 mm. 4to. [iv], 430, [1 errata, 1 blank] pp. 19 plates (18 numbered and 1 un-numbered), tables, 3 figs., index; occasional light foxing. Modern maroon cloth, gilt spine, new end-leaves. Very good. Beginning at page 202, J. Harry Thompson gives a remarkable case report of a woman who had been admitted more than once to the Columbia Hospital for Women suffering from severe pain in the supra-pubic region, with continuous urine dribbling. Having discovered a foreign object in the bladder, Thompson removed it by an incision made in the viscous through the vagina with the patient under etherization. The foreign object turned out to be an iron handle of a crochet-needle, around which had been wound and knotted hempen cord. The crochet-needle was encrusted with deposits of urine salts. The un-numbered plate gives an image of the crotchet-needle. Plates include illustrations of surgical procedures and instruments. Contributors include Samuel C. Busey on the diseases of children; D. Webster Prentiss on diseases of the eye and ear; and F. A. Ashford on the diseases of women. Rutkow GY20.1. Bookseller Inventory # M7603
