Titre : The Principles and Practice of Surgery, ...
Éditeur : London: Printed for E. Cox? 1836 [?1837, ?1843].
Date d'édition : 1836
3 volumes, 8vo, pp. xxvii, 490, engraved frontispiece portrait and 18 coloured plates + 18 leaves of text; pp. xxviii, 495, and 16 plates (10 partly coloured) + 17 leaves of text; pp. xxiv, 749. Lacking a half-title in volume 3. Small and fairly insignificant library stamp on portrait and plates, larger stamp in upper corner of title of volume 3, a few plates slightly shaved, a few small marks but generally a clean set. Nineteenth century half sheep, red morocco label on spines. First edition of Alexander Lee?s edition of Astley Cooper?s course of lectures, and the best edition, with more text and plates than Tyrrell?s edition. ?Cooper?s surgery thus became the standard textbook of the day and held this position for many years after his death. The last rendering was by Lee,?a three-volume work. The monographs on hernia, fractures and dislocations, the testis and breast are also incorporated in these, making a very impressive and comprehensive series further embellished by illustrations. Even today today these lectures well repay reading for the sound and excellent surgical instruction they contain? (Brock, p. 108). See Brock, The Life and Work of Astley Cooper, chapter XIII, where he discusses these lectures, which Cooper never published himself in book form. N° de réf. du libraire 2792
