HEATH, George Y.. Address in Surgery, Delivered at the Thirty-Eight Annual Meeting of the British Medical Association, Held in Newcastle, August 9th, 10th, 11th & 12th. 1870..

[London]. T. Richards, [Reprinted from the British Medical Journal], [1870]. Offprint.
8vo. [2], 18pp. With the colour plate illustrating the results of surgery on three different afflictions of the leg; an amputation through the knee joint, a mal-united fracture and a club foot. Sewn within original publisher's pale-blue paper wraps. Slight creasing, else a fine presentation copy from the author. Inscribed 'H. Lonsdale M.D. With authors Compt.' to head of title, with a short annotation in the same hand relating to the success of lithotomy at Newcastle Infirmary, where the author practised as Surgeon. The original condition of this volume is all the more remarkable given that it was posted, with a half-penny red affixed to verso, postmarked 1870 and addressed to Lonsdale.
H. Lonsdale M.D. (1816-76), Physician to the Cumberland Infirmary, political radical, friend of Garabaldi, Kossuth and Mazzini, and biographer. COPAC records a single copy of this rare illustrated offprint account of provincial surgery, at Newcastle. OCLC adds no further.
