Caption: Woodcut of a wounded man (middle) having an arrow extracted from his chest. This was before the availability of any anaesthetic treatment, so there is a man behind the invalid trying to soothe the pain. Photographed from Feldtbuch der Wundartznei (Field Book of Wound Surgery), by Hans von Gersdorf, a German army surgeon; published in Strasbourg, 1530.
