Green, Horace, M.D
Report on the use and effect of applications of nitrate of silver to the throat, either in local or general disease
Edward P. Allen, 1855. First separate edition, (the text appeared in January 1856 in the Transactions of the American Medical Association); 8vo, pp. 42, [6]; original printed green wrappers (dated 1856); very good. Green was the first American physician to specialize in diseases of the throat, and his 1846 publication, Treatise on Diseases of the Air Passages, was attacked for its assertions that topical medication could be introduced into the throat by means of a probang. "In pointing out ... the value of applying solutions of silver nitrate locally in catarrhal inflammation of the pharynx and larynx he made a fundamental contribution" (DAB). Listed in OCLC but without any locations; a defective copy is at NLM (without a title page). Cordasco notes only an 1856 edition.
