About this Item

viii,(4),328pp. (including 1 page of publisher's ads). Illustrated with 2 copper engraved plates. Cont. calf, a bit rubbed, hinges starting but still quite sound, red calf spine label. The second and best edition, first published in 1762 (as "Practical Remarks on the Hydrocele"). There is a 1773 "Third edition," but it is exactly the same as the second edition. Percivall Pott (1714-1788) was a classically trained surgeon who introduced a wholesome skepticism for the procedures of his day. He was guided by his own keen observations and common sense, and is now regarded as the earliest surgeon of the modern type. When he wrote this book he was the Senior Surgeon at St. Bartholomews Hospital in London. G & M, #4164. NLM, p. 361. Bookseller Inventory # 6890
