1 p.l., 245 pp. 8vo, modern cloth. Philadelphia: J. Harding, 1847. [bound with]:New York Dental Recorder. Vol. 1, No. 6, Feb. 1, 1847. Pp. 61-72. 8vo. [New York: 1847]. The Dental Intelligencer contains an apparently unrecorded reprint of Bigelow's momentous announcement of a successful use of anesthesia "Insensibility during Surgical Operations produced by Inhalation"; it is unknown to Fulton and Stanton, who list five other reprintings. Also included are a number of articles and letters regarding the discovery of inhalation anesthesia: several articles are reprinted from the London Lancet ("Inhalation of Sulphuric Ether"), and the Boston Medical and Surgical Journal ("Inhalation of Gases in Surgical Operations," and "The Inhalation of an Ethereal Vapor to prevent sensibility to pain during surgical operations" by Joseph F. Flagg). In addition, an anonymous letter written under the pseudonym "Claudian" has been printed, in which the author discusses the patent debate surrounding the discovery. Finally, there is an announcement of Morton's decision to make available his invention "letheon" to the public. Excellent copies. . (Inventory #: HillBibl-5435)
