Paris, Jean Couterot & Louis Guerin, 1684.
8vo (190x120 mm), frontispiece-(30)-581-(1) pages. illustration : 52 engravings in the text. binding : Contemporary full sheep, spine gilt in six compartments. Staining and waterstains, wormholes in the margin of the second part. Poor binding, leather on the spine is missing, corners bumped.
Book attributed to "Sieur de Saint-Hilaire" by Barbier.
If the book is complete on the question of anatomy and description of diseases, a second volume (which is rarely reported) will be published in 1685 on the question of remedies.
The publication is however remarkable for the very numerous engraved anatomical plates.
