Thanks! Today there's one on the market at the 150 pound level, which provides a handy reference point:

(1758). SHARP, Samuel. A TREATISE ON THE OPERATIONS OF SURGERY, WITH A DESCRIPTION AND REPRESENTATION OF THE INSTRUMENTS USED IN PERFORMING THEM: TO WHICH IS PREFIX'D AN INTRODUCTION ON THE NATURE AND TREATMENT OF WOUNDS, ABSCESSES, AND ULCERS. London: Printed for J. and R. Tonson, 1758. 7th edition.
