Dr. Echols' Civil War Medical Text-Book Collection

This Civil War medical book collection is based on the actual medical books listed as being in the Surgeon General's Office Library 1840, 1864 & 1865 Catalogues.  The books in the collection represent the publications as shown in the SGO Catalogues or those selected by the U. S. Army Medical Department for distribution to the Union Surgeons.  It is a working collection of the medical textbooks used by the surgeons who operated during the Civil War.  If the Surgeon General and his staff thought the book was important and valid, that is part of the attraction to using the catalogues for the basis of the collection.  Not all books were selected by the military and there must have been a good reason for selection or exclusion of various authors.

It's all inter-related on this site: medical schools sold lecture cards, physician lecturers who were authors wrote books used at the medical schools, the surgeons who attended the medical colleges fought in the Civil War, surgeons joined the Army, the Army bought surgical sets for the surgeon's use, and round and round it goes.
