Description

Excerpt from Mechanical Therapeutics: A Practical Treatise on Surgical Apparatus, Appliances, and Elementary Operations; Embracing Bandaging, Minor Surgery, Orthopraxy, and the Treatment of Fractures and Dislocations The author has availed himself of the advantages offered him in hospital and private practice, and has submitted to actual trial most of the plans Of treatment described in the work, noting at the time their advantages and disadvantages in the cases in which they have been recommended by their authors. All embarrassing generalities have been avoided as far as possible in the descriptions, each step in the preparation and application of apparatus being minutely detailed. In a work of this nature it was indispensable for the easy under standing of the subjects treated that it should be fully illustrated. Many engravings introduced throughout the volume have been drawn from the well-known works of Velpeau, Gross, Miller, Erichsen, Fer gusson, Druitt, Skey, Pirrie, and Sargent; while the author would also acknowledge special indebtedness to the elaborate treatises of Hamilton, Malgaigne, and E. R. Smith, on fractures and dislocations. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
