27 pp. 8vo, attractive antique green-morocco & marbled boards, spine lettered in gilt. Boston: Thurston, Torry, 1849. A pamphlet compiled to support Dr. Charles T. Jackson's claim that he was responsible for the discovery of anesthesia rather than William T. G. Morton. Jackson, a prominent chemist, contested that he had advised Morton on methods of pain relief, specifically ether anesthesia, as early as September of 1846. Despite its clear bias in favor of Jackson, the present pamphlet provides vital details about the events and the individuals involved in the debate regarding the true discoverer of anesthesia. Title-page a little discolored around edges, otherwise a fine copy. ❧ See Sim, The Heritage of Anesthesia, p. 14-15. . (Inventory #: HillBibl-5311)
