[250] Druitt's ‘Surgery,’ Bartlett ‘On Fevers,’ Wood's ‘Practice,’ Watson's ‘Practice,’ Tanner's ‘Practice,’ and a copy of the ‘United States Dispensatory,’ by Wood & Bache.

Occasional copies of The Confederate States medical and surgical Journal, reached field and hospital surgeons. It was published in Richmond by Ayres & Wade, with the approval and under the supervision of the Surgeon-General, monthly from January, 1864, until February, 1865. A complete file from which much important historical data can possibly be obtained, is now in the Library of the Surgeon-General's office at Washington. The first number reported a regular meeting of the ‘Association of Army and Navy Surgeons,’ organized in Richmond, August, 1863, with Samuel P. Moore, the Confederate Surgeon-General, as president.

Dr. J. J. Chisolm, who entered the army as a surgeon from Charleston, South Carolina, wrote an excellent little ‘Manual of Military Surgery’ of about four or five hundred 12mo pages; and another manual, about the same size, was prepared by surgeons detailed for that purpose by Surgeon-General Moore, and published in Richmond, in 1862 or 1863. These were supplied to many field and hospital surgeons by the Government.

Another work published at Richmond in order that the medical officers, as well as the public, might be supplied with information, which at that time was greatly needed, was prepared by direction of Surgeon-General Moore, by Francis Peyre Porcher, M. D., formerly surgeon in charge of the city hospital in Charleston, South Carolina, and professor of materia medica and therapeutics in the medical college of that city, and was entitled ‘Resources of the Southern Fields and Forests, Medical, Economical, and Agricultural, being also a Medical Botany of the Southern States, with Practical Information of the Useful Properties of the Trees, Plants, and Shrubs.’ A large number of copies was printed, and the book supplied to the medical officers and all others who made application.
