Paris: Bureau du Bulletin General de Therapeutique, 1862. 8vo. , 130 pp. With numerous text illustrations of prosthetic devices. Original printed wrappers, uncut and unopened. Item #2623
First printing, apparently for purposes of handing out at a conference of orthopedic surgeons. This work contains fourteen short articles by famous physicians, including presentations of new devices used for massage, artificial limbs, feet (in an article by Duchenne de Boulogne), legs, and other amputated body parts. With absolutely wonderful illustrations, this work is a medically-substantive journal which appears similar to a company's merchandise catalogue.
