Description from website:
Samuel Sharpe(1700-1778) is considered the link between old and modern surgery. William Cheselden, the leading surgeon in the first half of the eighteenth century, was his master; John Hunter, if not actually his pupil, learned from him by tradition.
Sharpe was elected surgeon to Guy's Hospital in 1733. His Treatise on the operations of surgery (first published in 1739) and his Critical enquiry into the present state of surgery (1750) were celebrated in their day, and the Critical enquiry is still a most interesting book to the surgeon.
