Bowditch, with Continuation by the Rev. George Ellis," (Boston 1943) loosely inserted at front.

Bowditch's history of the discovery of ether is contained on pages 212-341. This edition includes an extract from Bowditch's will: "In 1851 I published for private distribution, at a cost of eleven hundred dollars, a History of the Massachusetts General Hospital.... It would gratify me to have my friend and classmate, Edward Wigglesworth, superintend the printing of any such new edition. The valuable index inserted in this volume contains more than 100 citations to various aspects of the ether discovery and the controversy surrounding it that are included in this volume. There are engraved plates depicting the Massachusetts General Hospital (2 views) and the Asylum for the Insane in Somerville as well as engraved portraits of Nathaniel Bowditch (the author), John C. Warren, and James Jackson. Fulton Stanton IV.44.
