VOGT, Paul. DIE NERVEN-DEHNUNG ALS OPERATION DER CHIRURGISCHEN PRAXIS, eine experimentelle und klinische studie. Leipzig: Verlag von F. C. W. Vogel, 1877. First edition. Illustrated with one double-page color lithograph and ten wood-engraved text illustrations. Octavo. [vi],80, pp. Contemporary binding of green cloth-backed paper-covered boards, with a paper spine label. Ex-library; remnants of a shelf label on spine and several ink stamps within. Boards are lightly dust-soiled and scuffed; but the book is clean within and very good overall. Vogt, who was professor of surgery at the University of Greifswald, applied von Nussbaum's nerve-stretching to the trigeminal branches, but with only temporary relief. (Walker, p. 313).
