Crucial Interventions

or an Illustrated Treatise on the History of Surgery

ISBN: 9780500518106 (HB - E)

The 19th century saw a complete transformation of the practice and reputation of surgery. Crucial Interventions follows its increasingly optimistic evolution, drawing from the very best examples of rare surgical textbooks with a focus on the extraordinary visual materials of the mid-19th century. Unnerving and graphic, yet beautifully rendered, these fascinating illustrations include step-by-step surgical techniques paired with medical instruments and painted depictions of operations in progress. Arranged for the layman from head to toe, and accompanied by an authoritative, eloquent and inspiring narrative from medical historian Richard Barnett, Crucial Interventions is a unique and captivating book on one of the world's most macabre professions, and promises to be another success.
