Dedham: H. Mann, 1816. First edition. Modern cloth, leather spine label. 318 pp. Foxing and toning, light to moderate, otherwise very good. "Mann was an army surgeon who served three years in the Revolution and another three years in the War of 1812. His chief writing was the Sketches, which gives probably the best and most vivid picture of early nineteenth-century American military life. The chapter on surgery (pages 206-33) is especially invaluable for its first-hand descriptions of the treatment of wounds"--Rutkow, The History of Surgery in the United States, GS4.
