Rutkow GS 28: This book is important because it was the first textbook of surgery to come out of the eclectic movement and the first nonallopathic surgical work to be published in America. This work contains 60 lectures covering a wide range of topics in addition to over 100 illustrations. … Among the more interesting subjects are anesthesia and an extensive appendix detailing numerous botanical formulae for medicine and external application.
