Fantastic vintage book of surgery chock full of surgical illustrations ( 1349 as the book states ). Book is edited by Frederick Christopher BS MD FACS. Unfortunately illustrators not mentioned. Published by W.B. Saunders Company 1937. This is a very heavy book.

Book in redish brown hardcover with gold title on spine. Cover in overall quite good condition, with only very light wear and staining on spine. Corners and ends of spine have minor rubbing and bumping.

Spine and binding quite good, only slightly loose from age. Book is approx 9 3/4" by 6 1/2" and 3" thick. ( this book is big and very heavy).

Pages very good, smooth and glossy, with minor yellowing from age, mostly on end pages. No writing found in book but there is partially removed book plate on inner end page, can be covered with your own bookplate if you wish.

Total 1608 pages!! And as mentioned before it is loaded with B/W illustrations and photos of surgical procedures and conditions. I wish I had room for more photos to show you.

Book contains chapters on surgery of all parts of the body. Fascinating book loaded with vintage clinical surgical information.

Have seen listed elsewhere for up to $100.00
