Surgery of the Ambulatory Patient
By L. K. Ferguson
J.B. Lippincott Company, 1957
Words do no justice here. Simply imagine 664 photos and illustrations like these…
Obviously a well used copy...can you imagine seeing this on the desk of your physician? "Dr. Mengele will see you now...no, put that reading material down and come now. He is a busy man!"The yellow of the dustjacket is caution enough for me...!

I've always had a thing for beautiful lithographs...only this one is describing how to conduct an anal probe. So that is what those UFOs are up to...! Is the "Alien Autopsy" in here too?
Ugh! I know some doctor somewhere has to look at this stuff, but why me?
Yuck! Who would let an infection get that bad? Hello, Emergency Room please! Excuse me, I'm going to go barf now!
Don't tell me, Cousin Harry decided to have photographs of his prodigious warts taken...but did he have to mix them with the family vacations photos? Yikes!
Look, I dropped out of Premed so I wouldn't have to look at this stuff. And don't you dare tell me what this is illustrating! I do not want to know!
