Incredibly rare first edition of Fabry’s most important work!

 

Wilhelm Fabry von Hilden was a famous 16th-century surgeon who is often called the ‘father of German surgery’. In 1641, following his death, his most famous book was first published – ‘Observations on Treatment of Surgery’. This book was one of the best 17th-century surgical manuals, known because it was a compendium of medical case records. Fabry wrote thorough descriptions of his surgical procedures including the practice of using magnets to remove metal shards from patient’s eyes.
