Caption: Amputation. Surgical instruments used for amputations from A Discourse of the Whole Art of Chyrurgery (1654) by Peter Lowe. Surgery at this time was painful and risky as anaesthetics and antiseptics were not invented until the 19th century. The accepted medical practice of the day was for surgeons to complete their work as quickly as physically possible.
