American Surgical Instruments. An Illustrated History of their Manufacture and a Directory of Instrument Makers to 1900

Publisher Information: San Francisco: Norman, 1997. 1st edition. With over 300 illustrations, including 27 color plates, this is the first comprehensive history and directory of the American surgical instrument trade prior to 1900 and it provides a wealth of information never before available. Though a great deal is known about the practice of surgery and the men who performed it in colonial and nineteenth-century America, very little is known about the makers and dealers who provided the tools for these great practitioners. Dr. Edmonson has created a much-needed resource for historians, curators, and instrument collectors alike. xi, 352 pp. 307 illus., 27 in color. 8 1/2" 11". Index. Cloth, dust jacket, acid-free paper.
