About this Item

Inscribed to August-Theodore Vidal de Cassis [Ferchaud, Pierre & Dezermaux-Audevard, A.] De la propriété anesthésique des vapeurs de l'éther sulfurique et leur application dans les opérations chirurgicales dans le but de neutraliser la douleur, par M. Jackson, de Boston. Appréciation de cette découverte. . . . 8vo. [4] 120pp. Paris: Leclerc, 1847. 222 x 140 mm. Original printed wrappers, spine chipped with partial loss of spine title. Lightly foxed, but very good. With Dermaux-Audevard's signed presentation inscription on the front wrapper: "à Mr. le Dr. Vidal (probably French surgeon Auguste-Théodore Vidal de Cassis [1803-56]), témoinage d'estime et d'amitié, A. Dezermaux-Audevard." First Edition. Probably published early in 1847, when the French still believed that Jackson was the sole discoverer of surgical anesthesia-a misapprehension that Jackson consciously promoted in his 1846 letters to Elié de Beaumont, and in his March 1847 paper sent to the Académie des Sciences. Word of the discovery of etherization reached England and France in December 1846, just a few weeks after Morton's historic demonstration on October 16; however, while the British medical establishment reacted immediately to this exciting news from America, the French were slower to respond. "In fact it was January 12, 1847, before the surgeon Joseph François Malgaigne, prompted not by first-hand information but by enthusiastic reports in American and British journals, thought it time that France took notice of the discovery, and at a meeting of the Académie de Médecine, in Paris, attempted to rouse general interest" (Duncum, Development of Inhalation Anesthesia, p. 135). Exceptionally Rare--OCLC cites two European locations only. Hirsch for Vidal. Bookseller Inventory # 34539
