About this Item

Duchenne de Boulogne, Guillaume B. A. (1806-75). (1). 2 A.Ls.s. on his embossed stationery to the publisher Bailliere, dated 22 and 29 August 1872. 2pp. plus integral blank (22 August) & 2-1/2pp. (29 August). Together 4-1/2pp. 216 x 135 mm. & 210 x 135 mm. Creased where previously folded, edges of first letter chipped, light dust-soiling to second letter, but very good. Both letters docketed and annotated by recipient. With: (2). Motet, A[uguste] (1832- ). Duchenne (de Boulogne) et son oeuvre. .loge. . . . Offprint from Ann. med.-psych., 8th series, 3 (1896). 8vo. 31 [1]pp. Paris: Masson et Cie., 1896. 244 x 158 mm. Original wrappers, tear in front wrapper. With: (3). Brissaud [Edouard] (1852-1909). L'oeuvre scientifique de Duchenne de Boulogne. Extract from Arch. d'electricite medicale exp. et clin. 7 (1899). 8vo. [448]-468pp. 242 x 162 mm. Disbound, several leaves loose, light foxing. Two letters from the founder of modern neurology in France, best known for his electrophysiological studies of the nerves and muscles; see G-M 614, 624, 4732, 4736, etc. In his first letter, Duchenne notifies his publisher that he will be returning several books lent to him by the Baillieres for the purpose of compiling an unnamed work-possibly the collection of articles published in the early 1870s under the title Contributions a l'╚tude du systeme nerveux et du systeme musculaire. Among the books Duchenne borrowed were a 2-volume work by Jaccoud (possibly his Traite de pathologie interne, 1870-71); a work by Holmes on the diseases of children (possibly Timothy Holmes' Surgical Treatment of the Diseases of Infancy and Childhood, 1868); Vol. III of Francois Longet's Traite de physiologie (3rd ed., 1868-69); and Leuret and Gratiolet's Anatomie comparee du systeme nerveux (1839-57). In the second letter Duchenne reminds the Baillieres that the Jaccoud work mentioned in his previous letter had been sent to him in error, and that the Bailli╦res had billed him twice for the Leuret-Gratiolet set. Accompanying these letters are two articles on Duchenne's life and scientific work. Bookseller Inventory # 36266
