First edition. Foreword by Brodie's son, Benjamin Collins Brodie, 2nd Baronet. "Brodie's scientific career has three aspects: he was a researcher, a surgeon, and general practitioner, and a member of the medical establishment…He was elected a member of the Royal Society, at the age of twenty-six, in February 1810, and in 1811 was awarded the Copley Medal, the youngest member ever to receive it. … Brodie was an excellent diagonostician and built a flourishing practice as the leading surgical consultant. He became personal surgeon to King George IV in 1828, and president of the Royal College of Surgeons in 1844, having been an active member of its council for a number of years. He was knighted in 1834, and three years later, as he felt befitted his new station in life, bought a landed estate in Surrey." – DSB Vol. II.
