About this Item

Cooper, Astley (1768-1841). A treatise on dislocations, and on fractures of the joints. 4to. [2] viii [2], 592pp. 30 engraved plates by J. C. Canton, each with explanation leaf. London: for the author by Longman [etc.], 1823. 294 x 240 mm. Modern buckram. Light browning & foxing, but very good. 19th century ownership signature dated 1865 on flyleaf. Second edition, enlarged, of Garrison-Morton 4412.1, the most famous work on fractures and dislocations ever published. Cooper's work, first published in 1822, became the standard work in its era for British, American and even Continental surgeons. "Many later clinical modifications were developed from Cooper's original methods" (Bick, Classics of Orthopedics, p. 102). In the spirit of his teacher John Hunter, Cooper discussed not only anatomical and clinical problems with fractures, but also the results of some animal experiments on fracture healing. The second edition includes an appendix containing several additional case histories. Peltier, Fractures, A History and Iconography pp. 42-43. Bookseller Inventory # 35871
