About This Item

8vo (21 x 13 cm). VII, [1 blank], 404 pp. Modern brown half morocco, with the original wrappers bound in. Some spotting throughout, else in fine condition.

First edition of a thorough treatise on the use of opium, in which Brachet recommends prescribing high doses.

Jean Louis Brachet (1789-1858) did important research in the field of neurophysiology. A prolific author with keen observational powers, he used opium himself rather immoderately to alleviate the acute pains that probably resulted from stomach cancer.

Warings, Bibliotheca therapeutica II, p. 594; cf Walusinski, 'Jean-Louis Brachet (1789-1858). A forgotten contributor to early 19th century neurology in: Revue Neurologique (2015, Oct; 171(10)), pp.688-697.
