    Description
    Using a laryngoscope to aid a surgeon in the removal of a polyp from the throat, c1890. A small mirror on a long metal handle was invented in 1854 by a Spanish singing teacher Manuel Garcia to study the vocal chords. In 1858 Ludwig Turck (1810-1868) and Johann Czermak (1828-1873) both published papers on the use of the instrument, but Czermak invented a headband mirror to throw light on the Laryngoscope mirror, an so on the throat. From Les Grands Maux et les Grands Remedes (The Principal Illnesses and Their Remedies), Jules Rengade, (Paris, c1890).
