Two engraved ports. 20 pp. 8vo, orig. printed wrappers bound-in modern half-calf & marbled boards, spine gilt. Richmond: J. Ferguson, 1877. Issued for presentation by the author, with new pagination, this is the very rare offprint of the seminal paper by Sims (1813-83), in which he establishes the priority of Dr. Crawford Long of Georgia as the first to employ ether anesthesia in a surgical procedure. He considered Long's contribution the most important because Long recognized the potential of ether and performed surgery employing anesthesia from 1842 to 1846, before anyone else. This paper originally appeared in the Virginia Medical Monthly, Vol. IV, Part 2 (May 1877), pp. 81-100. Fine copy. ❧ Fulton-Stanton II.11. Sim, The Heritage of Anesthesia, p. 27-(journal appearance). . (Inventory #: HillBibl-5401)
