Some foxing on the first and last leaves and endpapers, but a good copy. FIRST EDITION, undated issue. The first English surgical textbook to devote considerable discussion to various plastic procedures. The second of Liston?s great textbooks, his Practical Surgery published a little later in 1837, contained an entire chapter devoted to plastic surgery. See the Zeis Index 593 for the present book, and numerous other references for Liston?s other works. ?In his day Liston was the most dexterous and resourceful surgeon in the British Isles. He was the first in the country to remove the scapula and the first, on 21 Dec. 1846, to perform a major operation with the aid of an anaesthetic? (G&M 3328, the Practical Surgery).
