3 KILLIAN, Gustav (1860-1921). The Accessory Sinuses of the Nose and Their Relations to Neighbouring Parts. Illustrated by Fifteen Coloured Plates. Translated by D. R. Paterson.
Jena: Gustav Fischer, 1904. 1904 
Loose folio sheets. (332 x 255 mm) vii, [1], [4], [4], [4], [4], [4], [4], [4], [2], [4] pp. Fifteen colored plates, each with a printed glassine overlay. Quarter cloth over yellow printed paper, with three original black cloth ties; neatly rebacked in black cloth. Rare. Fine. FIRST EDITION. This rare set of plates depicting the anatomy of the sinuses as described by Killian. The fifteen plates are colored and feature a printed glassine overlay; each plate is accompanied by a descriptive text. Killian's name still exists in anatomy and surgery today as Killian's bundle which is the inferior constrictor muscle of pharynx, Killian's operation which is an operation for frontal sinus disease, and Killian's polyp which is an antro-choanal polyp originating in the maxillary sinus. Gustav Killian, the father of bronchoscopy, was appointed Professor of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology at the University of Freiburg in 1892. In 1897, he successfully removed a bone splinter from the right bronchus of a Black Forest farmer. Admitted as an emergency case, the patient had difficult respiration, blood was streaming from his mouth and he had mucoid expectorations; he had ingested the piece of bone with his soup. Listening to his breathing, a wheezing noise could be heard in his right lung area, Killian used a head mirror as light source, an esophagoscope (size 33.5 cm), and forceps to remove the bone splinter, which was 11 mm long and 3 mm thick. Killian became famous and his clinic attracted patients from far and wide for his expertise in removing foreign bodies. He removed bones, beans, buttons, coins and a tin whistle. A family traveled all the way from Montevideo/Uruguay with their seven year old daughter who had inhaled a tin whistle. The grateful family sailed back to South America after the child was saved. Killian devised and improved instruments to observe and explore the bronchial ?Terra Incognita?. In May 1898, about one year after his initial experiments, he described some basic facts of modern bronchoscopy in Münchner Medizinische Wochenschrift: ?The bronchial tubes are elastic, mildly flexible and can be dilated. But most importantly, they can be displaced. One should not imagine the bronchial tree to be stiff as if it were made of wrought iron. On the contrary, both the entire structure and the different branches show pulsating and respiratory movement.? [Saeed]. Saeed, Bronchology Past, Present and Future Diagnostic Procedures, 2000, p. 4. First Edition.
