RARE FIRST QUARTO EDITION, SECOND ISSUE (with the title reset and 12 preliminary pages "Avant-Propos" by Duchesne-Duparc added after title). The main text including page numbering (and pagination errors) and the plates are identical with the first issue of 1832. There also was an edition in two volumes in smaller octavo format the same year. In 1806 Alibert had published his observations on dermatological conditions observed at the Hopital St. Louis. His classic textbook introduces the tree of relationships of skin diseases, an idea also found in his Nosologie naturelle, ou les maladies du corps humain distribuees par familles, of 1817. Alibert's works were widely read and translated.
