A medical paper concerning the application of the 'antiseptic method' during two operations conducted by German surgeon Richard von Volkmann (1830-1889). The work is prefaced by Joseph Lister (1827-1912), a pioneer of antiseptic surgery of whom Volkmann was an early supporter. The method, though revolutionary, consisted of nothing more than sterilising surgical equipment prior to use and cleansing wounds following procedures.£ 75.00 Antiquates Ref: 13408
