Description: New York, William Wood, 1869. Octavo. Pp. xx, 565, (1) Errata, (1) publisher's ad. With 40 wood-engraved illustrations. Hardcover, bound in the original publisher's purple full cloth, gilt lettering to spine, sides ruled in blind, brown chalked endpapers, inner hinges partly cracked but remain very firm, some wear to spine-ends and corner-tips, old attractive bookplate tipped-in onto first free endpaper. In a very good condition, fine interior. ¶ ~ Second English ('American') edition, translated from the fourth German edition and edited by John Roosa. Comprising of 31 Lectures. Anton Friedrich von Tröltsch (1829-1890), pioneer of otology. Professor of Otology at Würzburg, where renowned otologists Friedrich Bezold (1842-1908) and Abraham Kuhn (1838-1900) were his students. He invented the modern otoscope and devised the first modern mastoid operation which was first performed in England in 1868 by Hinton. Tröltsch was a co-founder of the Archiv für Ohrenheilkunde. In his Translator's Preface, Roosa considers this edition a 'new work'. The translation has been liberal in part - Roosa has added material of his own and in several cases expressed his own, different opinions. He took care, however, to enclose his material within parentheses indicated by his initials. In 1873 Roosa has published his own version of 'Practical Treatise on the Diseases of the Ear, including the Anatomy of the Organ'. Extremely rare, so much so in the original binding with the title 'Tröltsch on the Ear'.
