Norman 174; Eimas, Heirs of Hippocrates 1305; Garrison-Morton 5588; Waller 857; Wellcome II, p.136. One of the most dramatically and beautifully illustrated books in the entire literature of surgery. Hand-coloured copies show more blood than is usual for surgical treatises of this period."
FIRST EDITION IN BOOK FORM, FIRST ISSUE, with "Hurst" and a date in the imprint, and Bell's title not mentioning the University of London. RARE with some of the plates printed in sepia. "One of the most remarkable illustrated books in the history of surgery" (Norman). Great Operations was issued in parts during 1820-1821, and the first complete version was printed during the latter year. The plates were prepared after Bell's drawings by Thomas Landseer (1795-1880), brother of Edwin Landseer. "Most copies have the plates printed in black, but at least one copy exists with the plates in sepia" (Norman). - Visit our website to see more images!
