The authors present an annotated part of a surgical textbook from 1921 whose first - quite extensive - edition was published in 1917. The first part of the textbook concerns anaesthesiology and the text is divided into 5 parts: Introduction, Local Anaesthesia, Intravenous Regional Anaesthesia and Neuroaxial Blockade, General Anaesthesia I and General Anaesthesia II. Each part has been annotated in order to provide historical context of the anaesthetic methods and their origin. The textbook follows the German and Vienna schools of medicine.
