Heirs of Hippocrates 1608.7; Wellcome V, p.74. FIRST EDITION, "uncommon, of this description of this new method of amputation at the joints, by the noted military surgeon Raoul-Henri-Joseph Scoutetten, illustrated with eleven superb lithographic plates, of which all but one are folding. After a brief introduction in which Scoutetten sketches the development of the technique, the work describes the operatory procedure, and the various parts of the body to which the procedure is applicable. The detailed plates are by Dupuis and Tavernier after Moreau. Scoutetten was born in Lille, and was active as a surgeon during military campaigns in the Crimean and elsewhere, before becoming director of the military hospital at Metz. This work is exceptionally rare. OCLC records just two copies, at the National Library of Medicine and the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin." - Visit our website for additional images and information.
