A MANUAL OF MILITARY SURGERY, FOR THE USE OF SURGEONS IN THE CONFEDERATE STATES ARMY; WITH AN APPENDIX OF THE RULES AND REGULATIONS OF THE MEDICAL DEPARTMENT OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES ARMY
Richmond, VA: West & Johnston, 1862. Hard Cover. Good+ binding/no dust jacket. Octavo. J. Julian Chisolm based his Manual on his experience in Italy before the Civil War, and it became standard for all Confederate surgeons. Confederate surgical manuals are uniformly scarce as the surgeons often used them on the battlefield and the original paper quality is quite poor. This copy is in a sound binding, with a chip to the bottom front board, light staining to a few pages, and previous owner writing to rear endpaper and blank pages. "R. B. Richardson" is penciled to rear free endpaper," and we believe it to be the signature of the Confederate surgeon who worked at Bellevue hospital in Richmond during the war. One leaf lacking, that being the leaf between pages 480 and 481, which was the Form on which the names of the sick and wounded were listed. Please be aware that this leaf is not present. There is foxing throughout. Binding is protected in a hand cut mylar cover. Good+ binding / no dust jacket.
