DETAILS

A scarce copy of this influential medical treatise.

Third edition, written in Latin.

Considerably expanded from the first edition.

With chapters focusing on the process of using natural healing treatments to treat wounds, with particular focus on the studies of Ambroise Par . Ambroise Par was a French barber surgeon who served in the role for kings Henry II, Francis II, Charles IX and Henry III. He is considered one of the fathers of surgery and modern forensic pathology and a pioneer in surgical techniques and battlefield medicine, especially in the treatment of wounds. He was also an anatomist and invented several surgical instruments.

"Like Par, Magati believed that gunshot wounds were not in themselves poisonous. He proposed a rational treatment of wounds, which, in spite of the example set by Par, were still being treated with unguents of various kinds. He maintained that frequent exposure of wounds to the air was deplorable, and that the introduction of sounds and lint produced dangerous putrefaction. He denied the need for cleaning and anointing and prescribed bandaging with simple linen, to be renewed only after five or six days." (DNB)

Featuring a vignette title page.

Volume two of the original two.

What Our Customers Say...

Just to confirm that the Saffron Walden Museum catalogue arrived safely this afternoon. Thank you for sending it so swiftly. I'll actually be opening the Museum over Christmas - sadly the galleries have changed a bit since this catalogue was printed.

Bruce, UK

Just to let you know that the book arrived safely yesterday, and that I am very pleased with it. The condition of the book is excellent and the dustwrapper (which with this book is more often 'tatty') is almost perfect. Nice transaction I would say.

Norman, UK

The books already arrived! Thank you for a speedy delivery. Great condition.

Samira, Germany

As always, I'm very pleased with the book and with your continuing excellent service.
