A Manual Of Military Surgery Prepared for the Use of the Confederate States Army
Scarce C.S.A. Imprint with Association from a N.C. Medic
A Manual Of Military Surgery Prepared for the Use of the Confederate States Army, is a Confederate surgeon’s guide, with illustrations and diagrams showing how to conduct amputations and resections of a variety of body parts.
Published in 1863, and carried by a hospital steward in Stephen Dodson Ramseur’s Brigade, this little book could well have been used in Confederate field hospitals at Gettysburg.
Inscribed by owner “ S. M. Guffy, H. S. / Ramseur’s Brigade / Rodes’ Division / Early’s Corps / A.V.N.” Likely S. M. Guffey, a hospital steward in Company A., 4th North Carolina State Troops.
A scarce work of Confederate medical doctrine with a good soldier association!
