On Bandaging, and Other Operations of Minor Surgery
Philadelphia: Blanchard and Lea, 1862. 8vo. 383 pp. Wood-engraved illustrations in text. Original sheep, black morocco lettering-piece. Provenance: T. J. Adams (early inkstamp and inscriptions on flyleaves). A fine copy of this Civil War-era surgical manual by the father of painter John Singer Sargent, revised from the 1848 first edition by the addition of a chapter on military surgery by W. F. Atlee. Also with a fine Civil War provenance, inscribed at Camp Shanks in Indianapolis, 27 February 1864, where the 119th Infantry (or 7th Cavalry) rendezvoused under John P. C. Shanks. A severe battle between the 119th and the enemy had taken place in Okalona, Mississippi just 5 days before Adams's inscription. The Preface states: "The merits of this work as a handy and convenient manual for reference in the field and hospital, have induced the publishers to add to it a chapter (the Ninth) on Gunshot Wounds, and such other subjects peculiar to Military Surgery as seemed requisite to adapt it more thoroughly to the wants of Army Surgeons. Owing to the absence of the Author in Europe, this has been prepared by Dr. W. F. Atlee. Philadelphia, March, 1862." See Rutkow, The History of Surgery in the United States, GS25 (first edition). Cordasco 60-1568. Binding slightly rubbed; occasional pale spotting / From the Collection of Allan B. Kirsner, M.D.
