[Robert Liston] R.W. Liston [facsimile signature].
Drawn & Engraved by C. Turner, A.R.A.
London, Published Jan.y 16, 1840, by Mr Turner, No 50, Warren Street, Fitzroy Square.
Mezzotint, proof before title. 485 x 330mm (19 x 13"), with very large margins. Paper toned.
Three quarter portrait of Robert Liston (1794-1847), a Scottish surgeon who performed the first operation using modern anaesthesia (ether) in Europe, in 1846, after this portrait was published. During his career in Edinburgh he knocked down Robert Knox, a surgeon and client of Burke and Hare, in a row over the body of Mary Paterson. His speed was not always beneficial: in one case he took a leg in 2½ minutes, but took the patients testicles as well; in another he cut off his assistant's finger and slashed an observer's coat, after which the patient and assistant died of gangrene and the observer died of a heart attack.
See Richard Gordon: 'Triple Knock-Out: Disastrous surgical enthusiasm', 2001. Wellcome 1784-4; Whitman 313.
