Wellcome III, 374; Bedford p.613-14 ("long cited as one of the classical works on the subject"). FIRST EDITION of the first work devoted to this subject. Louis Jurine (1751-1819) was a Geneva based Swiss physician, surgeon and naturalist mainly interested in entomology. He studied surgery in Paris and quickly acquired a great reputation for his expertise in medicine and natural history beyond that which he had in Geneva. He taught courses in anatomy and surgery at the Société des Arts in Geneva and was made honorary professor of zoology at the Academy. He also founded a maternity hospice in 1807 and was awarded prizes for his work on the gasses of the human body, artificial feeding of infants, and pectoral angina.
