The emergence of modern gynecology in America is due in large part to the work of Howard Kelly. Kelly made pioneering contribution in such areas as the use of cocaine as a local anesthetic in the treatment of uterine displacement, ureter catherterization, the diagnosis of uteral calculi, the treatment of vesicovaginal fistula, and a host of other diagnostic and therapeutic advances. Many of these areas are included in the present work, making it one of the finest medical texts ever produced in America. The illustrations and plates are largely the work of Max Brodel (Heir of Hippocrates 2218). Note: due to the size and weight of these two books it might be best to enquire, first, as to costs and options to ship.
