Cases of the Excision of Carious Joints. With Observations by James Jeffray...

Glasgow: At the University Press, 1806. First edition thus. 12mo. (viii), 210, (2) pp. Contemporary red full roan, spine with raised bands, gilt lettered direct to one panel, marbled endpapers. 3 folding plates. Henry Park (1745–1831) was the son of a surgeon and promptly followed him into the profession. He first trained in his native Liverpool before completing his studies in London and then France. He soon returned to Liverpool and practised at the Liverpool Infirmary where he became recognised as an expert, especially so in the field of amputations. The work is divided into three sections. The first part of Park's contribution was published in 1783 under a different title, this edition with the addition of a further "case" communicated in a letter composed by him in 1789. This collected edition also provided the first English translation of Moreau's work. The volume concludes with Jeffray's observations on his contemporaries' works, addressed to the "Students of Anatomy and Surgery in the University of Glasgow". Jeffray was a professor in the subjects at the university. Item #29106
