ANESTHESIA - THE DISCOVERY CONTROVERSY.

JACKSON, CHARLES T. 1805-1880. A Manual Of Etherization: Containing Directions For The Employment Of Ether, Chloroform, And Other Anaesthetic Agents.... Boston: 1861.
8vo. Publisher's cloth. Spine chipped and faded, adhesive residue on upper cover.

FIRST EDITION. Logan Clendening's copy with his bookplate. One of the most significant documents in the history of anesthesia and the controversy over its discovery. Writing at the outset of the Civil War, Jackson explained: "This book has been written with a view to interest both the Surgeon and the Soldier, and with the intention of aiding the one and informing the other, as to the nature, effects, and management of Anaesthetic agents. It is hoped that the soldier in his camp will read with satisfaction the history of the discovery, which will in time of need prevent his suffering, when under the surgeon's knife; and no higher gratification would be desired by the author, than to know that he has made, what would otherwise have been a bed of suffering, one of pleasant dreams and happy thoughts, far removed from the horrors of the hospital" (Fulton-Stanton V.3). Heirs of Hippocrates 1675; Osler 1440.
