Caption: Frederick Treves (1853-1923), British surgeon. Treves specialised in abdominal surgery, one of his most famous operations being to treat Edward VII for appendicitis in 1901 two days before the King's coronation. Treves, who was made a baronet in 1902, had carried out the first appendectomy in England in 1888. Treves also knew Joseph Merrick (the Elephant Man), arranging for him to stay at the London Hospital. Books by Treves included 'The Elephant Man and Other Reminiscences' (1923). This photograph is from the Bain News Service, one of the USA's earliest news picture libraries. The photographs date from the 1890s to the 1930s.
