        Surgical observations on the restoration of the nose. Inscribed to John Lizars, and from the library of Lawson Tait

      London: S. Highley, 1833. No Dust Jacket. Inscribed to John Lizars, and from the Library of Lawson Tait Dieffenbach, Johann Friedrich (1792-1847). Surgical observations on the restoration of the nose; and on the removal of polypi and other tumours from the nostrils . . . with the history of physiology of rhinoplastic operations, notes and additional cases by John Stevenson Bushnan (1808?-84). 8vo. viii, [2], 9-159, [3, including ads]pp. 26 plates. London: S. Highley, 1833. 228 x 143 mm. (uncut). Original cloth-backed boards, rebacked, corners a bit worn. Edges of leaves a bit dust-soiled, unobtrusive library stamp on title and plates, but a fine copy. Presentation Copy, inscribed by Bushnan to John Lizars (c. 1787-1860) on the half-title: "Professor Lizars with John Bushnan's best regards." Bookplate of the Birmingham Medical Institute, noting that this copy was the gift of [Robert] Lawson Tait (1845-99). First Edition in English of the rarest book in English on plastic surgery after Carpue's Account of Two Successful Operations for Restoring a Lost Nose (1816). The above work is a translation, prepared by physician and medical writer John Stevenson Bushnan, of the section on rhinoplasty from Dieffenbach's Chirurgische Erfahrunugen (1829-34). Bushnan augmented Dieffenbach's text with annotations, accounts of his own cases and an important, well-documented history of rhinoplastic operations. Bushnan presented this copy to Scottish surgeon John Lizars (see Garrison-Morton 6026), whose letter describing a rhinoplasty operation he had performed in 1831 is reprinted on p. 157; the case is illustrated in plate XXV. This copy later passed into the ownership of another Scottish surgeon, Lawson Tait, who is cited seven times in Garrison-Morton for his contributions to gynecological and plastic surgery. Dieffenbach's clinical work in plastic surgery was "monumental in its variety, inventiveness and breadth of scope. . . .. Although Dieffenbach also used the Italian method of rhinoplasty, he preferred the Indian method because of the stronger quality of the forehead skin. . . . [He also] realized that the various metal contrivances of Tagliacozzi and von Graefe for shaping the new nose were largely ineffectual, and he devised many subsequent procedures for trimming and shaping the nose, thus greatly improving the results attainable by the Indian method" (Gnudi & Webster, pp. 321-22). Dieffenbach pioneered many methods and principles of plastic surgery which "have not been improved upon and are still constantly employed" (Gnudi & Webster, p. 321). Zeis 513.
