About This Item

Paris, Théophile Barrois, 1808. 8vo (21,5 x 14,5 cm). [2], XIV, 92, 7, [1 blank] pp. Modern marbled wrappers. In very good condition with an occasional foxspot, untrimmed and quires unopened, leaving deckle edges and point holes intact.

Second, augmented edition of Dessartz's detailed account of croup, or laryngotracheobronchitis, first published in 1807. Lovely unopened copy.

One of the treatments that the author prescribes is syrup of ipecac (in France also known as "sirop de Desessartz"), a cough mixtures widely used in the 18th and 19th centuries as as an expectorant; Desessartz details the recipe on pages 44 and 45. The last seven pages include with a separate part-title: 'Instruction en forme de Catéchisme, sur une espece de toux appelée Croup'.

WorldCat lists a handful of copies; this edition not in Wellcome Collection; cf. Hirsch & Hübotter, Biographisches Lexikon II, p. 162.
