Caption

Bone-setting mechanism. The surgery was carried out in 1760 on a 41-year-old soldier who had suffered a gunshot wound some years earlier that had shattered the bone of the upper arm. The mechanism and surgery was carried out and reported by the French surgeon Claude Nicholas Le Cat (1700-1768), of Rouen, France. This page is from volume 56 (1766) of the journal 'Philosophical Transactions', published by the Royal Society. Le Cat was elected a Fellow of the Society in 1740.
