8vo. Publisher's brown cloth. Rubbed, light toning and soiling.

FIRST EDITION With clipped signature of Hayward tipped to free front endpaper. Includes Garrison-Morton-Norman 6030 among the 22 articles included in this volume. Hayward "devoted himself largely to surgical work and was known as a careful and judicious operator, so that in 1835, when Harvard established a professorship of the principles of surgery and clinical surgery, he was chosen to fill the chair. He held teaching clinics at the Massachusetts General Hospital, where he was visiting surgeon, and it was he who did the second surgical operation ever done upon a patient under the influence of ether, the removal of a fatty tumor of the shoulder on October 17, 1846 ... the day following the first operation under ether by John C. Warren. On November 7, 1846, Hayward did the first major operation under ether anesthesia in the same institution, amputation of the thigh.... The operation was done before a large audience of students and physicians, and the patient, a delicate girl of twenty, with a scrofulous knee-joint, was entirely ignorant that her leg had been removed" (Kelly Burrage 547). John Shaw Billings praised Hayward: "It is to Warren, Hayward, and Bigelow that the surgical world is indebted mainly for a sufficient, general and safe method of anaesthesia" (Billings, The History and Literature of Surgery 126). Rutkow GS35.
