Plastic surgery of the face based on selected cases of war injuries of the face including burns with original illustrations
London: Henry Frowde, Hodder and Stoughton, 1920. FIRST EDITION. With hundreds of text photographs and illustrations. Original cloth with spine showing slight wear, still an excellent copy with the ownership inscription of Dr. Sidney Asher on first free endpaper and the blind stamp of Dr. Kelvin Shiffman. First edition. This work reflects the progress made in plastic surgery of specifically war injuries to the fact by the author at the Queen's Hospital at Sidcup. Many novel procedures are detailed. In a very sensitive introduction, W. Arbuthnot Lane states: "It is not sufficiently recognised how readily the skill developed in this branch of war surgery is directly applicable to the relief of disfigurements met with in civil life. Ugly scars resulting from burns and accidents, deformities of the nose and lips, hare lip and cleft palate, abnormal protrusion or ill development of the mandible, moles, port-wine stains, all abound, and are not only the constant source of the greatest distress and anguish, but materially lower the market value of the individual." Gillies (1882-1960), a well-known plastic surgeon, introduced a tubed pedical flap in 1917.
