A fine c. 1860 antique Petit spiral tourniquet, unmarked but made by Luer, Paris.
With a spiral Petit tourniquet in place on a patient's upper leg, a surgeon holds an amputation knife and is ready to remove a gangrene foot. See Archives, p. 34, for more details about this antique surgery photograph.
A very scarce and unopened package of one dozen field tourniquets put-up for the U.S. Army Hospital Department. Past observations indicate that each Civil War tourniquet inside is also wrapped and marked. A most desirable Civil War medical antique.
