Practical Remarks on the discrimination and appearances of surgical disease; with an appendix, containing the descriptive catalogue of the author's collection in pathological anatomy, and the Hunterian oration for 1833.
London:: John Churchill, 1840., 1840. 8vo. xix, [1], 420 pp. Original blind- and gilt-stamped cloth. Ownership signature on title of Andrew Bolton, Ebchester Hill. Near fine. RARE. First edition. The author was determined to write to the student of medicine and install the skill of understanding how to judge correctly the symptoms and appearances of any disease, what he called the "duty of discriminating disease." The Medical Times in reviewing the book, aligns its benefit with practical surgery rather than teaching theoretical surgery. "The commentary simply commences with the head, taking up the external parts first, and passing thence to internal affections; subsequently proceeds downwards to the neck, chest, and abdomen." Post-mortem appearances are given particular emphasis. [Vol. III, 1841, (p.94)]. Howship-Romberg sign is a sign used to identify obturator hernia, named for John Howship and Moritz Heinrich Romberg. John Howship, MD, was an English surgeon remembered for describing the Howship-Romberg sign. He was an assistant surgeon at St. George's Infirmary, London and lecturer at St. George's Hospital Medical School. He was a member of the council of the Royal College of Surgeons at the time of his death from a lower leg abscess. PROVENANCE: Andrew Bolton (ca.1830-1887), M.R.C.S., L.S.A., Ebchester Hill, Newcastle-on-Tyne, near Durham, United Kingdom. [See: Medical Times & Gazette, 1863]. Member of the Royal Colleges of Surgeons of Great Britain, "best known as the house-surgeon to the Newcastle Infirmary, which post he held for many years. He was also one of the secretaries of the Newcastle and Gateshead Pathological Society. About fifteen years ago [ca.1872] he resigned his post at the infirmary and commenced private practice, and at once met with very great success." He was 57 years old when he passed. - Lancet, July 16, 1887.
