Description
Ambroise Paré / Hans Herni ; Pierre-Yves Trémois ; Michel Ciry - Oeuvres - 1968
Illustrated, Medicine, Natural History - Quantity: 1 - Limited edition, Numbered edition, With slipcase - Book

Facsimile of the works of Ambroise Paré (1510-1590), French surgeon and anatomist, as published in 1585 in the first edition of Gabriel Buon illustrated with 382 engravings. This new and luxurious edition is prefaced by Robert de Vernejoul and Jean Rostand and is illustrated with 24 original tipped-in lithographs by three great artists: Hans Herni (1909-2015), Pierre-Yves Trémois (1921-2020) and Michel Ciry (1919-2018).

Limited edition of 5,000 copies, this one is one of the 500 numbered copies on vellum paper with a series of 24 illustrations. It is said as leather bound on the title page, but it was clearly not the case.

The set is in the form of three 4to volumes, paperbacks, covers with French flaps in sleeve and slipcase with gilded title on the spine.

In good overall condition, some light marks on the slipcase, the other imperfections are superficial.

Monumental edition, by size and weight.
