Cheselden's treatise on 'high' or suprapubic lithotomy is an account of an operation he performed in 1722. Publication of the book gave rise to a controversy over priority between Cheselden and John Douglas, who had performed a similar operation in 1719. Douglas accused Cheselden of plagiarism. Cheselden's treatise includes translations from various writers on urinary calculi. The seventeen engraved plates include several depictions of the bladder, the instruments used in lithotomy, and two plates of hernia.
