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.

I am very pleased that you took the time to consult me on the price before just adding the additional shipping cost onto my credit card. Ordering things on-line, one runs into all kinds of less-than-considerate business practices... Thanks again for taking the time to contact me. I'm looking forward to the book. - Eric P.
