WATSON-JONES, R[eginald].
Fractures And Joint Injuries.
Edinburgh: E. & S. Livingstone, 1943..
2 Volumes. 8vo. pp. xi, 407; vii, [408]-960. profusely illus. (some colour, some with descriptive flaps). index. Near fine set in original cloth. Third Edition. Watson-Jones "was considered to be one of the most outstanding orthopaedic surgeons in the mid-twentieth century and is responsible for bringing the treatment of fractures to the specialized position it holds today....Most surgeons at the time found the [present] text to be concise and "non-academic," which was refreshing and enabled them to better understand the concepts. The text served as a guiding hand for all military surgeons during World War II. Prior to this, there had never been a fracture text that dealt as comprehensively with fracture management. This remained a standard reference for decades in dealing with fractures and was translated into many languages. Still today it is a highly demanded book in areas of the world where operative treatment is not practical."

First Edition of the most influential treatise on anatomy of the eighteenth century. "[Winslow's] Exposition is distinguished as being the first book on descriptive anatomy to discard physiological details and hypothetical explanations foreign to the subject. He did much to condense and systematize the anatomical knowledge of his time." (Garrison & Morton) This is especially notable with regard to such matters as the origin, insertion, and nomenclature of the different muscles. In neurology (treated here in section VI), Winslow was responsible for designating the ganglion chain 'the grand sympathetic nerve', and the smaller branches 'the lesser sympathetic', terms which are still in use. The foramen between the greater and lesser sacs of the peritoneum (described here on pages 352-65) is named after Winslow. Reprinted here, pp. 641-659 is Niels Stensen's Discours Sur L'Anatomie du Cerveau (1669), written in opposition to Descartes' Traité de L'Homme. Blake p. 492. Cushing W243.
