The Medical Application of Electricity ... Sixth and enlarged edition

Boston, Massachusetts: Thomas Hall, Electrician and Manufacturer of Electro Medical Instruments 1865. [4], 241, [7], 36, [4] pages. 5 x 7 1/2 inches. Publisher's green cloth gilt. Binding dampstained along lower edge and lightly soiled overall. Endpapers soiled, plus first and last few pages (dirt, not damp). Good. Cloth. [27247]


This work was first published in 1848, supplied here in the sixth enlarged edition. The previous edition (fifth) added a supplementary chapter. This edition adds a valuable historical resource - the fifth edition of Thomas Hall's instruments (40+ pages illustrated, dated 1864). The introduction to the catalogue documents Hall's association with Daniel Davis,Jr. and later Palmer and Hall, before becoming a supplier himself. All editions of this work are uncommon, perhaps because the work is organized as a treatise both on how to apply medicine, but also including reports from the field about uses and results. The first 307 "vignettes" are supplemented with another 71 applications.

A useful reference work for anyone interested in electro-medical instruments, or the history of the medical application of electricity.
