Several text illus. 672 pp. 8vo, orig. cloth (extremities a little worn), spine gilt. Albany: Charles Van Benthuysen, 1852. In this account of the meeting of the American Institute of the City of New York, Charles T. Jackson presents a little-known paper on the use of anesthesia not only on humans but also on domestic animals. His discussion of anesthesia is found on pages 167-173. Jackson also gave the "Twenty-Fourth Anniversary Address" (pp. 227-246), in which he exhorts the audience to prioritize scientific progress in the United States. He concludes: "Go on, gentlemen; encourage art, science, and skill, and let the world see that America is not behind any of the nations of earth in enterprise and active intelligence." Nice copy. ❧ Fulton & Stanton V.IIa-"At the end he criticizes the method of administering ether and chloroform at the Massachusetts General Hospital and states on somewhat tenuous evidence that etherization and drunkenness are quite different one from the other." .
