About This Item

Paris and Montpellier, 1803. First Edition. Hardcover. Good. Dates: 1803-1821. Quarto. Contemporary French decorated boards, smooth calf spine (damaged by biopredation along hinges but not affecting text), vellum corner tips, sprinkled red edges. Some foxing and staining (particularly at the end of the first Dissertation). With ink stamps "Sigillum Principis Palencae" on endleaves. A fascinating volume. The compiler of this curious Sammelband seems to have been fascinated by a number of disturbing topics including operations on cataracts, cyanose (or the blue malady), uterine hemorrhages, the anus "contre-nature," lithotomy, hysteria, vapors, apoplexy, and sulfuric acids. Illustrated with 4 plates, of which two are of medical instruments, one is of a shoulder brace, and one is too horrible to describe (but see illustration). A strange assemblage of horrendous early 19th-century medical studies; of the twenty works bound herein, no less than 12 were printed in Monpellier. CONTENTS: 1. Tartra, A. E. De l'opération de la cataracte: Thése seutenne publiquement, dans l'amphithèâtre de la faculté de médecine de Paris, en présence des juges du concours; le vendredi 24 Janvier 1812. Paris: L.P. Dubray, 1812. Final leaf stained; ink markings. 2. Gintrac, E. Recherches analytiques sur diverses affections dans lesquelles la peau présente une coloration bleue: Et en particulier sur celles que l'on a désignées sous les noms de cyanose ou maladie bleue. Paris: Didot Jeune, 1814. 3. Lasserre, J. G. Dissertation sur la lithototomie [i.e. lithotomie], le tamponnement dans les hémorrhagies utérines et sur l'usage d'un bandage nouveau dans la fracture de la clavicule. A Paris: de l'Impr. de Didot jeune, 1814. With 3 engraved plates. 4. Lafage, B. Essai sur les maladies des nouveau-nés depuis leur naissance jusqu'à l'époque de la dentition. Paris: Didot Jeune, 1812. 5. Larbes, J.-A. Essai sur l'érysipèle. Montpellier, 1814. 6. Latour-Marliac, F. Considérations physiologiques et pathologiques sur la menstruation. Montpellier, 1818. 7.

Montpellier, 1819. Presentation inscription from the author partially cropped. 1 engraved plate of Jean Lajoux, who died in 1818, aged 52, from an extreme form of testicular cancer. 8. LAFAYE, J.-B.-A. Essai sur les hémorrhagies utérines qui surviennent pendant l'accouchement à terme. Montpellier, 1813. 9. AZEMAR, P. Considérations générales sur les anus contre-nature [etc.] Montpellier, 1821. NB: the BL copy supposedly has "a plate" which is not present here or in the BnF copy. 10. Crebessac, M.
