The Story of Surgery
Available in Stock
Although first published over 50 years ago, Richardson's 'broad outline of the evolution of modern surgery' remains an absorbing account of great surgeons and surgical breakthroughs, written for both professional and general readers. The book covers all the major types of surgery and ranges in date from the discovery of anaesthesia to the first heart transplants, on the verge of modern practice. This new edition includes a great deal of new material, and a much expanded bibliography. Slightly off-mint.
