This exceptionally rare English surgeon's kit by Stodart of London was once used by a surgeon to perform amputations. Held in its original fitted case, the assemblage of ebony-handled instruments includes a large amputation saw, metacarpal saw, tourniquet, scalpel, forceps and amputation knives, among other tools. The complete and easy-to-carry kit helped ensure that a surgeon could quickly administer medical treatment to patients at home, in the street or even on the battlefield. Since these cases were personally assembled by surgeons according to their own preferences, no two boxes are exactly alike. A very similar kit by Stodart is in the collection of the Science Museum in London.
