About this Item

viii, 378 pp. Original cloth. Near Fine. 'The present volume contains Bigelow's writings and speeches on anesthesia, medical education, vivisection, a proposal to improve execution by hanging, and several other subjects. Many of the papers had previously been published in the medical press but others are published here for the first time. Of special interest is a previously unpublished letter on the discoverer of surgical anesthesia in which Bigelow comments that 'I have advocated the claim of Morton on two grounds, that his alone was the first perfect knowledge as to the three points of certainty, safety, and completeness. These three points constituted the discovery' ' (Heirs of Hippocrates 1865). Contains reprints of Garrison-Morton 5651 and Garrison-Morton 5730. Bookseller Inventory # 21858
