ANESTHESIA PIONEERS.

SMITH, MAYO G. 1816-1901. A Popular Treatise on the Teeth: Containing a History of the Dental Art ... Also a Full and Accurate Account of the History of Ether or Letheon, For The Prevention Of Pain, With Directions For Its Use. Boston: 1848.
Decorated cloth (rebacked with original spine laid down). Frontispiece flap illustration. First edition.

Mayo Gerrish Smith was one of the first graduates of Oberlin College. He lists himself as a dental surgeon in this book, which includes responses to letters he wrote to pioneers of anesthesia and prominent surgeons. The printed replies to his questions regarding the use of ether came from Walter Channing, John C. Warren, and Valentine Mott. "Although the second part [titled A TREATISE ON THE INHALATION OF ETHER FOR THE PREVENTION OF PAIN] has a separate title-page, collation and pagination, it does not appear to have been issued separately" (Hoolihan-Atwater S-1235). Sim, Heritage of Anesthesia, p 56.
