First edition

Joseph Guichard DU VERNEY Traité de l'organe de l'ouie, contenant la structure, les usages & les maladies de toutes les parties de l'oreille

Joseph Guichard DU VERNEY

Traité de l'organe de l'ouie, contenant la structure, les usages & les maladies de toutes les parties de l'oreille

Chez Estienne Michallet, à Paris 1683, in-12 (9x17cm), (24) 210pp., relié.


The very rare first edition with 16 unsigned folding plates.

 


 

Contemporary brown sheep, spine in compartments, headpiece and one corner repaired, wormtrack to middle of upper margin, a few insignificant wormholes. The final engraving is shaved and lacking the last lines of text from the legend. A very good copy.


 

Du Verney’s first work; he was renowned for his knowledge of anatomy and physiology, was tutor to the Dauphin and taught in the Botanical Gardens.


 

This is the first scientific monograph on the structure of the ear and its illnesses, and is therefore very significant. It played a determining role in the understanding of this organ, whose study had been until then much neglected. Stamp of Doctor Maurice Petit of Montereau.
