First edition.
Interesting preface in which the author discusses the trends that shaped medicine at the time. Fodéré navigates there between what is not yet called positivism (Auguste Comte will not come until a few decades later) and the vitalism promoted by the school of Montpellier.
Fodéré will later hold the chair of forensic medicine in Strasbourg and will be considered the founder of this discipline.
