EXCEPTIONALLY RARE FIRST EDITION of Jobert de Lamballe's treatise on plastic surgery (atlas only). Antoine-Joseph Jobert (1799-1867) was a French professor of anatomy and a gynecologist. He was personal surgeon of Louis-Philippe and Napoleon III and is one of the pioneers of general anesthesia in France using ether. After having studied medicine in Paris, followed - as a pupil of Richerand and Jules Cloquet - by an internship at the Hospitals of Paris in 1821, he was appointed prosector and became a surgeon at the Hospitals in 1829, a surgeon at the Hôpital Saint-Louis in 1830, then an associate professor of anatomy in 1831. Jobert is best known for his masterful use of autoplasty, the repair of diseased parts by surrounding healthy tissue, and especially for the operation he called elitroplasty correcting the vesicovaginal fistula. He gave an impetus to the therapy of affections of the uterus and its appendages. He was the first to perform sliding cystoplasty to heal vesicovaginal fistula. It describes procedures for the surgical cure of various fistulas and the restoration of the functions of urinary organs which have undergone autoplastic operations. Jobert was elected to the Academy of Medicine in 1840 and to the Academy of Sciences in 1856. (Wikisource). Not in Garrison-Morton, Norman or Heirs to Hippocrates.
This work is of exceptional rarity. We know of only two copies of the atlas, and none of the text volumes, that have come to market in the past 50 years (our copy and the copy of the Royal Colleges of Surgeons of Ireland, Sold at Lyon & Turnbull in 2013). - Visit our website to see more images!
