Bibliographic details

FIRST EDITION OF CORVISART'S TRANSLATION FROM THE LATIN Complete with half-title and errata. Uncut in the original wrappers, re-backed with the original spine label. An absolutely fantastic copy, preserved in a slipcase. First edition of Corvisart's classic translation of one of the great medical masterpieces. The results of Auenbrugger's experiments, with the immediate percussion of the chest as a new diagnostic method, were first published in Vienna in 1761. For nearly fifty years this revolutionary technique attracted little attention, until Corvisart (1755-1821), Napoleon's personal physician, published his translation of the original text. It was through Corvisart's reputation and advocacy that the value of thoracic percussion was universally recognized. Auenbrugger (1722-1809) was a physician at the Spanish Hospital in Vienna. Garrison & Morton, 2672. n n
