This book is perfect for anyone interested in the beginnings of surgery and practice. The Baganda of Central Africa popularized bloodletting to purge disease. The Caesarean section was employed in Uganda circa 1879. The Romans practiced a rudimentary form of surgery in Pompeii in the 1st century AD. Lanfranc of Milan popularized lithotomy and cataract surgery. His school believed that wounds in vital organs tended to be fatal. Later, Wiseman dealt with amputation and anaesthesia was popularized. This book would be excellent for any student of science or medicine. It is a good value for the price charged.
