The citizen surgeon, a life of Sir Victor Horsley by J. B. Lyons
As one of the great pioneers of modern medicine, Sir Victor Horsley has come to be regarded as the father of neuro-surgery. J. B. Lyons' biography will appeal to both layman and doctor, for it is full of human detail and anecdote and it makes the thrill of experimental surgery understandable even to those who would not know one end of a scalpel from another. But more than that, he brings the colourful and fascinating character of his subject to like so that we come o know him not merely as an eminent surgeon but as a warm-hearted human being and affectionate family man.
This is a secondhand hardback copy in excellent condition. There are scuff marks on the outer sleeve, but the book itself is perfect.
