A Dissertation on the Inutility of the Amputation of Limbs

An extract of the Dissertation, of which I now publish a Translation, had given me a very high opinion of it; but on a perusal of the whole, I found it still better than I had imagined: It seemed to me one of the most useful and best executed performances on Surgery, and I hoped it would very soon be translated into French.Eighteen months having elapsed without any such translation appearing, I thought of procuring one. I then endeavoured to find a translator, but failing in that, I determined to do the office my self. I imagined, that, in thus dedicating a few hours of my time to this work, I should do a considerable service to many unfortunate people. I shall rest well satisfied if, by rendering this excellent book more common, I prove the means of adding to its influence, and of inducing a great number of surgeons, who may now read it, to quit the cruel and fatal practice of amputation, for the method which Mr. Bilguer proposes, with a degree of sincerity and precision which leaves no room for doubt. The title of the original is, Dissertatio inauguralis medico-chirurgica, de membrorum amputatione, rarissime administranda aut quasi abroganda, quam, pro gradu doctoris medecin? et precipue chirurgi? rite consequendo, die vigesima una Martii, A. S. 1761. In alma Regia Fridericiana speciminis loco, public? eruditorum censur? submisit, Johannes Ulricus Bilguer, curia-rh?tus generalis pr?fectus chirurgorum exercit?s regii Borussici.?

A Pirate of Parts (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from A Pirate of Parts They were all actors like Handy himself. The stories they could unfold of barn-storming in coun try towns in years gone by would fill a volume as bulky as a census report. Moreover, they could turn their talents to any line of business and dou ble, treble, quintuple parts as easily as talk. They were players of the old stock school.

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

‘Once upon a time and a very good time it was there was a moocow coming down along the road and this moocow that was coming down along the road met a nicens little boy named baby tuckoo ‘ So begins one of the most significant literary works of the twentieth century, and one of the most innovative. Its originality shocked contemporary readers on its publication in 1916 who found its treating of the minutiae of daily life indecorous, and its central character unappealing. Was it art orwas it filth? The novel charts the intellectual, moral, and sexual development of Stephen Dedalus, from his childhood listening to his father’s stories through his schooldays and adolescence to the brink of adulthood and independence, and his awakening as an artist. Growing up in a Catholic family in Dublin in the final years of the nineteenth century, Stephen’s consciousness is forged by Irish history and politics, by Catholicism and culture, language and art. Stephen’s story mirrors that of Joyce himself, and the novel is both startlingly realistic and brilliantly crafted. For this edition Jeri Johnson, editor of the acclaimed Ulysses 1922 text, has written an introduction and notes which together provide a comprehensive and illuminating appreciation of Joyce’s artistry.
