Mit gestoch. Titel, 18 Kupfertafeln und 2 Textkupfern. 172 Seiten (inkl. Titelkupfer), 3 Bll. Kl.-8°. Pergamentband der Zeit. Klassisches Werk in der Geschichte der Urologie. - Besonders wegen seiner Kupfer, die anschaulich die Operationsmethoden zur Entfernung von Blasensteinen zeigen, geschätztes Werk von F. Tolet, "Maître Chirurgien Juré à Paris & de l'Hospital de la Charité des Hommes". - "In Tolet's day lithotomy was one of the major and most dangerous operations. Explicit directions are given for the operation in children as well as adults of both sexes. Particularly stressed is the need for careful restraint of the patient during surgery using strong assistants, straps, scarves, or cloths. The lesser and greater lateral perineal operations in men and women are described and illustrated. Among the many causes of the stone, the author named unleavened bread, waterfowl, curds, pap, old cheese, hard egges, unripe fruits, the feet or legs of beef or pork, salted or spiced meats, and medicines which dehydrate the body. The plates depicted instruments, positioning the patient, the use of the curved metal catheter, the making of the incision, and use of extracting clamps" (Heirs of Hippocrates 660 (engl. Ausg. 1683). - Gering gebräunt; sehr gute Erhaltung. Exlibris von Dr. Friedrich Bonhoff. - Vgl. Waller 9629/30 (Ausg. 1681 und 1693) und Kiefer Cat. 570 (Ausg. 1681). Bookseller Inventory #
