  15.  A c. 1848 antique amputation set by Snowden, Philadelphia, with a Civil War history of use in the Confederate States Army.  S.C Gleaves / 45th Rgt is scratch-engraved upon the lid brass cartouche. The antique Civil War surgical set belonged to Dr. Samuel Crockett Gleaves (1823-1890), of Wytheville, Virginia, an 1848 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania.  Shortly after graduating, Gleaves establish a practice in Wytheville.  At the outbreak of the Civil War, Samuel C. Gleaves became the lead surgeon of the 45th Regiment Virginia Infantry, part of General John B. Floyd's Brigade, organized at Wytheville in May 1861.  For an extensive documentation of the life of Dr. Gleaves, please see the Gleaves Family Website (note the links at the bottom of the page).  Also associated with the surgical set are Confederate surgeons James A. Templeton, A.B. Fitzpatrick (1831-1906), Hobson Clark (1832-1905), Thomas Zadock Offutt (1829-1911), ? Carter, W.B. Robertson, and Barzilla H. Hoyt.  The antique Civil War surgical kit is complete.  SOLD

  18.  A fine and scarce 16th century antique silver-mounted shagreen surgical and bloodletting instrument case.  Such distinctive shagreen boxes are associated with the United Company of Barber Surgeons as several bear the coat-of-arms of the London guild.  For one major example, please see this link.  The silver clasp is engraved:  J. Fowler / Stanton-Drew.  Fowler is an old family name in Stanton-Drew, and, certainly, it is a lineage that is contemporary in time and place with the 16th century case.  The small English village of Stanton-Drew is located 8 miles south of Bristol, in Somerset, and it appears in the Domesday Book of 1086.  The interior velvet lining bears the impression of the antique spectacles that were stored in the box during the 18th century.
