1 p.l., pp. 465- 484, ; 1 p.l., 485-504, ; 1 p.l., 505-524, ; 1 p.l., 525-544, . Four parts printed & issued together. 8vo, orig. printed wrappers, spine carefully backed with paper. Boston: D. Clapp, 1847. Four numbers with important articles about the growing use of ether anesthesia (under the auspices of the "letheon"). "Ethereal Vapor" on pages 472-73, written by an anonymous physician, raises doubts about the safety of the titular substance. Pages 489-90 contain an article by Dr. Horace Kimball of New York, who is greatly satisfied with his use of the letheon, allowing him to extract 17 teeth from a patient with minimal suffering. On page 514, using the pseudonym "Claudian," an anonymous author criticizes the conduct of Morton and Jackson and also warns of the overuse of the letheon. On page 542, there is a positive report on the potential of this "new discovery." Very good copy. ❧ Fulton-Stanton, VII.92-(Kimball), 50 ("Claudian"). (Inventory #: 5574)
