From the title page: A manual of military surgery, prepared for the use of the Confederate States Army by order of the Surgeon-General. Richmond: Ayres & Wade, Illustrated News Steam Presses, 1863.

An earlier work, by world-famous Jefferson physician Samuel D. Gross, was pirated (reprinted without permission) by a Richmond, VA, publisher in 1862. This later Confederate manual was compiled by contributors "unambitious of authorship."

The 1863 edition is reproduced in two formats for the Jefferson Digital Commons. A large PDF file offers a faithful reproduction of the full volume. For greater ease of use, each chapter and plate grouping is also listed separately. The original copy held by the Special Collections in Scott Memorial Library is heavily discolored; it has been digitized in greyscale for greatest legibility.
