3 Bandersnatch, Frumious, M.D. Surgical Blunders and How to Avoid Them: A Teaching Manual of Case Reports.

Octavo, gray boards (hardcover), 168 pp. Near-Fine, with light foxing (age darkened spotting) to page edges; in a Near-Fine, mylar protected dust jacket. From dust jacket: We all learn from our mistakes, but it is better to learn from someone else's mistakes. This is a book about mistakes. Each story represents an incident that really happened. Some of them are humorous, some are embarrassing, and others are tragic. All of the stories are true, but in many the details were changed to prevent the perpetrator from being too easily identified. Every surgeon, except of course the author, has made mistakes from time to time. Most of them (just as the errors related in this book), could have been prevented if their possibility had been recognized prospectively, and the same type of error is rarely repeated in the same form by the same individual. However, sooner or later someone else will repeat the mistake unless he has had the opporutnity to experience the error vicariously, either by watching it happen or by reading this book. Dr. Bandersnatch has had extensive experience in nearly all fields of surgery...
