EXCEPTIONALLY RARE FIRST EDITION of Luys' doctoral thesis on the pathological histology of human pulmonary tissue affected by the tuberculosis. "Jules Bernard Luys was born into a wealthy Parisian family on August 17, 1828. He completed all of his classical and medical studies in Paris and spent his entire career in the Paris area. He started his internship in 1853 and immediately initiated a series of anatomical studies under the direction of Charles Robin (1821-1885). Robin championed the use of the microscope in clinical medicine in France as Rudolf Virchow (1821-1902) did in Germany. At the age of 28, Luys wrote a widely acclaimed memoir on the use of the microscope in pathological anatomy, diagnosis and treatment of diseases. He became doctor of medicine in 1857 after having successfully defended a thesis on the histopathology of tuberculosis." (Andé Parent et al.
