In 1912 the Surgery Publishing Company of New York put out an unassuming small book called "Surgical Operations with Local Anesthesia," by Arthur E. Hertzler. The topic was something of a novelty, but the book was clearly written and well illustrated, winning at once a high degree of popularity. A second edition was necessary in 1916, which was considerably larger and better illustrated than the first. This was also enthusiastically received by students, surgeons and reviewers. In 1925 the C. V. Mosby Company published the third edition of the book under its present name. The Journal of the American Medical Association (84:1943 [June 20] 1925) devoted half a column to it, ending the review, after certain mild rebukes, in much the fashion of earlier reviewers: "These are minor criticisms, and are not meant as a criticism of the work as a whole, which is excellent and can be highly recommended."
