Signed by author on half title page without inscription. First Edition with full number line. In protective acid-free archival quality acetate cover.The gripping story of how Joseph Lister's antiseptic method changed medicine forever.Historian Lindsey Fitzharris reveals the shocking world of nineteenth century surgery on the eve of profound transformation. She conjures up early operating theaters, no place for the squeamish, and surgeons, working before anesthesia, who were lauded for their speed and brute strength. These medical pioneers knew that the aftermath of surgery was often more dangerous than their patients' afflictions, and they were baffled by the persistent infections that kept mortality rates stubbornly high.
