Surgical cases with illustrations.

Brigham, Charles Brooks, 1845-1903.

Cambridge : H. O. Houghton and Co., 1876.

Description : [1]-110 p., [12 l pl.] ; ill.: 12 photo. ; 25 cm.

Photographs : 12 heliotypes (including 1 composite).

Subject : Surgery.

Notes :

The following cases, with two exceptions, have been treated in the three years of my practice at San Francisco. They have been published with the hope that they would prove interesting to the Medical Profession.

The illustrations have necessarily been reversed in the process of heliotyping, but if this is borne in mind in Plates 1, 2, 4, and 5, no confusion need occur. — Preface.

Several cases were published without their photographic illustrations in the San Francisco Western Lancet. However at least one of the plates — the two views represented by plate 2 captioned, Restoration of cheek — appeared as two separate albumen prints in that journal (vol. 2, September, 1873, pp. 505-510 vide intra: »»).
