101.  A very early capital amputation saw from Jacobean England.  The saw is impressed with the H mark of Robert Hobbs, London, fl. c. 1606-1621.  Instruments by Hobbs are believed to be the earliest extant English maker-marked surgical instruments.  A nearly identical saw is illustrated in John Woodall, The Surgeon's Mate, 1639.  This is precisely the saw that one would expect to have been used  by Giles Heale,  a member of the Barber-Surgeon's Company and the ship's surgeon on the Mayflower, and by Samuel Fuller, the surgeon of Plymouth Colony.  25" long.  SOLD

102.   A well-made c. 1860 antique toothkey marked: J. BIDDLE, NY.  The handle is beautifully turned ebony and the three claws retain their original bluing.

 

 

 

 

  103.  An early 1800s antique amputation saw with ebony handle.  The spine terminates with a stylized serpent's head.  A nearly identical saw is illustrated in Benjamin Bell, A System of Surgery.  Vol. IV, PL. XCVIII, Fig. 1.  Troy: O. Penniman, 1804.
