2 BELL, Sir Charles (1774-1842). Observations on injuries of the spine and of the thigh bone: in two lectures, delivered in the School of Great Windmill Street.

Quarter red buckram, boards, gilt spine; covers soiled. Blind stamp of The Presbyterian Hospital, Ludlow Library, Philadelphia on title. Ownership signature of Charles A. Carton. Very good. UNOPENED COPY. RARE. FIRST EDITION. The text of these two lectures is, as usual, in Bell's typical lucid style, and the nine plates, drawn by the author, are remarkably effective. The first lecture is given over to a criticism of some views by another famous surgeon of Bell's time, Sir Astley Paston Cooper (see No. 1224 ff.). The second lecture is in support of his brother, John Bell, recently deceased, certain of whose findings had been claimed by Cooper as his own (Heirs of Hippocrates 1306). Gordon-Taylor 22; Haskell Norman Library 171; Heirs of Hippocrates 1306; Hirsch, I, p. 378; Orr Historical Collection 53; Thornton, Medical books, libraries and collectors, rev. ed., pp. 153-154; Wellcome, II, p. 136.
