A History of Surgical Dressings

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Although the rationale and technique of surgical dressings have been the subject of minute study, there are very few historical accounts of these topics in the English language. The History of Surgical Dressings is a complex subject with many obscure byways. To write a comprehensive account of dressings would be a task almost as great as to write the history of surgery itself. This little booklet is not conceived upon such ambitious lines: its purpose is to provide a short account of theories and practice in regard to surgical dressings from the earliest times.

CONDITION: DJ has moderate scuffs and wear but no tearing. Bump damage to front also on front board. Page edges foxed but inside clean and bright as well as plates. (See photos for details.)
