Description: 36 full-page plates in very clean condition. Includes the list of plates, in French, and the lovely allegorical frontispiece for "Chirurgie" section, but no actual title page. Folio, rebound in recent cloth-backed marbled boards. N.P., N.D., circa 1760. Ownership information inside front cover, still in near fine condition -- an uncommon collection of these medical plates.

Comments: 36 plates from Diderot's 18th century Encyclopedia, depicting interesting medical instruments and various operations from Lithotomy and a rather horrible looking Mastectomy to Craniotomy and Amputation.
