Manual of Surgery
Originally published in 1904, The Manual of Surgery by Alexis Thomson and Alexander Miles is considered the most important medical text of the Victorian Era. Lavishly illustrated with gruesome photos of surgery and sickness, the book is an intimate look at turn-of-the-century medicine and a treasured curiosity for doctors, students, and medical history readers.
