56 pp. 8vo, orig. printed wrappers (spine carefully backed with paper), stitched as issued. Boston: Rand & Avery, 1861. First edition of a rare publication which summarizes the testimonials in favor of William T.G. Morton held in Boston, New York and Philadelphia. "A brief biographical description of Morton is followed by an important chronology detailing the efforts of Morton and others to petition the U.S. government for financial remuneration."-Sim, The Heritage of Anesthesia, pp. 21-22. Very good copy. First few leaves a little discolored. ❧ This must not be confused with the Eastburn edition of the same year which is identical in content but differs in pagination due to differing type sets (see Sim). .
