Fourth printing. Presentation copy from 17 New York Hospital staff members to the assistant surgeon in 1940 (Edward W. Douglas). x, 181 pp. From the Preface (1940): The Atlas of Surgical Operations is the result of the difficulty experienced in answering the countless questions of internes, resident surgeons, students, and assistants over a period of twenty years of teaching as to where they might learn about the intimate technical steps of surgical procedures. It has long been apparent that no single volume could contain both adequate descriptions of all surgical diseases as well as a complete recital of the steps in the operations which such diseases require. As a result, the admirable textbooks which the medical students of today use most frequently are those describing diseases for which surgery may seem advisable. The more extended attempts to write surgical textbooks for the practicing surgeon, compressing both diagnosis and therapy into a single volume, have necessarily resulted in incomplete descriptions, which fail to give the information provided. This Atlas contains most of the common surgical procedures which are standardized and about whose technical performance there exists no essential difference of opinion. Wherever several procedures are generally recognized as useful and desirable, we have, as a rule, selected the one which we think has best stood the test of time, in the believe that it is better for the young surgeon to perform one procedure well than several procedures improperly. Should the Atlas fulfill our hopes, other procedures will doubtless appear in subsequent editions. The format of the book is simple. We wished the drawings to tell the story and wished to include no more text than would conveniently fit opposite the plates.
