Comments: One of the greatest classics on hernia, from which derive the eponyms "Scarpa's fascia" and "Scarpa's triangle" of the thigh. The magnificent anatomical plates, drawn and engraved to perfection, represent their subjects life-size. "Scarpa explained with excellent precision the different characteristics between inguilan and femoral hernias. The anatomical investigations resulted in the establishment of the very important principles relating to the pathology as well as the modern surgical treatment of these hernias." Monti/Loria, Antoniocarpa p. 67 - 68. First Edition cited in Garrison 336; Choulant/Frank 298099; Heirs of Hippocrates 690; Waller 8544.

I don't think I have ever before felt the urge to write to a business, but I wanted to let you know that I have been extremely pleased with everything I have received. I started acquiring older titles when I decided to read some of the early writings in my field. While I noticed that some books were available digitally, I quickly discovered that nothing compares to having the actual books in my hands. For me, they inspire a feeling of deep respect for the work of these past authors that just cannot arise similarly from an eReader or a PDF. All of the books I ordered have been beautiful, packed with obvious care, and shipped in lightning speed. I'm hooked! The next time I head downstate I will look forward to visiting your store in person! Best Regards - Lisa.
