Book Description George G. Harrap & Co., London England, 1938. Cloth. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. Reprint. Hardback. Surgeon Extraordinary. Slight foxing to end inside covers and edge. Wear and tear to D/J. Foreword by A. J. Cronin. J. B. Murphy was not only a great man and a great surgeon, who, beginning life in the traditional log cabin, got near enough to the White House to attend professional the President of the United States. Murphy was also an individualist, fierce and unashamed.And, since the profession of his adoption demands an absolute conformity, the upward thrust of Murphy's career was marked by many a hot encounter with authority and by much exciting drama. What a fellow he was! I suppose all surgeons are, in a way, dramatic figures who enjoy, even though it be subconsciously, a sense of their own effects. But Murphy was a super-dramatist who played the lead in his operating theatre, self-confident and steeled, as though aware that life and death stood waiting in the wings. 287 pp. Hand cut pages. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions, Reference books ,and all types of Academic Literature.) Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" Tall Octavo. Hardback. Bookseller Inventory # 093391
