Traité des maladies vénériennes, dans lequel, après avoir combattu d'anciens préjugés sur la conduite de ces maux.
12mo: 369 pages with one impressive folding plate.
Full contemporary sheepskin.
One of the interesting aspects of this book, illustration aside, is that it takes up the contemporary debate about the use of mercury in dealing with venereal diseases. Fabre had famously used mercury inunctions, which he employed to the point of salivation, without which, according to him, the remedy is robbed of "the principal efficacy which makes a specific against the pox". Fabre wrote that the pox diseases was expelled by the massive amount of salivation caused by mercury.
The surgeon Jauberthou does not share in the view of Fabre. Whilst being a mercurialist, he clearly states that salivation is harmful.
The debate was to continue.

Please review my on going correspondence on the catawixi website with the vendor Mike.
Dan HealyHello. I think this is an unnecessarily harsh and hurtful review. I have checked many times with France Poste, been to their central sorting office, and been told that 'once the package' has left France, it is no longer trackable by them. I have apologised many times to Dr Healy. Occaionally in the thousands of transactions France Poste undertakes daily, one parcel gets waylaid. This is especially so with the many disruptive strikes in France. I share Dr Healy's frustration and will continue to explore the Poste as much as I can. Apologies again, Michael
