by Bigelow, Henry J., M.D.
Boston: David Clapp, 1848. 8vo, pp. , 27, ; bound with, as issued: Bigelow, Anaesthetic agents, their mode of exhibition and psychological effects [drop title]; pp.18; this the first edition in which both this article and its extention appear together. Ether and chloroform had been published previously in the Boston medical and surgical journal. Disbound, original printed pink wrappers preserved; very good. Bigelow's championing of ether as an anesthetic led to its widespread adoption. (Garrison-Morton). Neither Garrison-Morton, nor Fulton & Stanton cite the combined publication, although a number have surfaced in the trade. See Garrison-Morton 5730 for Ether and chloroform independently issued.
