In his book, and in several earlier papers, he brought the importance of this branch of anaesthetics into the foreground." – Garrison and Morton. "Channing, brother of the famous preacher and grandson of a signer of the Declaration of Independence, studied medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. He received his postgraduate education in Europe and then returned to practice in Boston. Channing became the first professor of obstetrics at Harvard in 1815 and was later dean of the medical school. He was also a founder of the Boston Lying-in Hospital and a coeditor of the Boston medical and surgical journal. Sir James Young Simpson (see No. 1764 ff.) was the first physician to use ether anesthesia in obstetrical cases and Channing was the first to do likewise in America. Channing published an early paper on the subject in 1847 and followed it the next year with the present monograph. He planned the treatise carefully, presenting both the pros and cons of obstetrical anesthesia as well as detailed instructions on his methods and techniques. The over 500 case histories included in the book provide strong support to his arguments for the use of ether anesthesia." (Heirs of Hippocrates). Garrison and Morton 5661; Heirs of Hippocrates 1428; Norman 441; Waller 1894; Wellcome II, p. 325. First Edition.

8vo. [16], 416 pp. Woodcut illustrations. Cont. speckled calf, sides ruled in blind, brown leather spine stamped spine label. Complete with the preliminary leaf signed ?A? (otherwise blank). Armorial bookplate of Honorable Sir William Irby, of Boston, Lincolnshire, Bart. The Jack Pincus copy, from his library. A splendid copy. FIRST EDITION of ?ONE OF THE GLORIES OF ENGLISH MEDICINE.? - D.N.B. THIS BOOK IS THE FIRST FULL ACCOUNT OF THE CHILDHOOD DISEASE RICKETS, AND ONE OF THE VERY FIRST WORKS ON PEDIATRIC MEDICINE TO BE PUBLISHED IN ENGLAND. ?All writers on the diseases of children agree in their admiration of this book. Its 416 pages are full of original observation. The propositions arrived at are stated in a scholastic manner, and some of the accompanying hypotheses are associated with physiological doctrines now forgotten, but these are not mixed up with the observations of patients during life and after death, which make the book a work of permanent value.? - D.N.B., VII, p. 1316. A fine copy of an extremely rare book on the market. It is interesting to note that Dr. John Martin, in his long book collecting career, never obtained a copy. Garrison-Morton 3729. Still, The History of Paediatrics, pp. 214-27. First Edition.
