Goldschmid, p.53; Wellcome II, 199; NLM/Krivatsy 1503-4; Waller 1275; Hirsch-H. I, 619. - FIRST EDITION, rarely found complete as here with both volumes and all the plates present. Extensive collection of case histories that Bonet collected for his own study. Théophile Bonet can be considered a "scout of topical pathological anatomical research." (Hirsch-H.). The plates show anatomical details, anomalies, ulcers, stomach stones etc. Bonet started his career as a city-physician in Neuchâtel at the age of 23 before becoming the private physician of Prince Henry II of Orléans-Longueville. He attracted the enmity of his colleagues claiming to regulate the practice of medicine in Neuchâtel and returned to Geneva in 1652. Becoming deaf at the age of 50, he devoted all his energy to the writing of medical books. - Visit our website for additional images and information.
