About this Item

Small 4to. Original green blind-embossed cloth, gilt spine. viii, 271pp, 31pp ads, (1p ad). 12 full-page color plates, illustrations, line drawings. Very good. Mild bit of edgewear, mainly at head and tail of spine; front flyleaf is an expert archival modern replacement; faint white number at tail of spine, though no other library markings. Tight, decent second revised edition of this noted text by the noted Chicago surgeon (1844-1908). A great association copy, for the front pastedown bears the large custom color bookplate of JOHN BENJAMIN MURPHY (1857-1916), another noted Chicago surgeon and a colleague of Senn's at Chicago's Rush Presbyterian; both were also charter members of the Chicago Surgical Society. Murphy's list of surgical accomplishments are many, though he's often remembered for popularizing use of the artificial pneumothorax in the treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis and for pioneering other thoracic surgery techniques. Front pastedown also bears Murphy's small printed "Library of / Dr. John B. Murphy, / Chicago" bookplate on which he's stamped a case number and shelf number. A superb association copy -- one Chicago medical pioneer's copy of another Chicago medical pioneer's book. GARRISON AND MORTON 5620. Bookseller Inventory # 33697
