The Royal Academy of Surgery in Paris beginning in 1732 proposed questions for its gold medal prize and gathered the winning essays in these eight well-produced volumes. The authors represented are Le Cat, Medalon, Bassius, Faure, La Sone, Alary, Kulbel, Hugon, Mopillier, Grassot, Guyot, Louis, Grashu, Eschenbac, Charmetton, Nannoni, Flurant, Goursaud, Bordeu, Majaut, De La Bissiere and Grillon. The 1752 date, which clearly appears in Roman numerals in volume six of this set, may be a printer's error and should be 1757. The N.L.M. (18th C.) printed catalog has of the duodecimo edition an incomplete first edition set and a later mixed set. OCLC notes only one set at the N.L.M. Not in Wellcome, Waller, Blocker Collection, Heirs of Hippocrates, Pybus, or Cole. Bookseller Inventory # 000602
