What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Leather Binding, Very Scarce
A very scarce first edition of this work.
In the original French.
A critical examination of the doctrines and medical proceedings of Jean Francois Sacombe.
Sacombe was an active opponent of caesareans, and was known for his 'Luciniade', a poem about the art of childbirth, which earned him a literary reputation as a madman.
In this work Demangeon attacks Sacombe's works and medical theories.
By Jean Baptiste Demangeon.
