About this Item

Presented to Nelaton Desgranges [?Antoine Joseph (1819-96]. Memoire sur un nouveau procede de cheiloplastie. Offprint from Gaz. hebd. med. chir., no. 55 (1854). 8vo. 21 [3]pp. Text illustrations. Paris: L. Martinet, 1854. 223 x 141 mm. (uncut & unopened). Original plain wrappers, a little chipped. Light foxing & soiling, but very good. Author's presentation inscription to French surgeon Auguste Nelaton (1807-73) on title: "A Monsieur le Professeur Nelaton / hommage respectueux / D." First Separate Edition, and rare, with no copies cited in OCLC or the printed catalogues we routinely consult. Desgranges was the Surgeon-in-Chief designate at the Hotel-Dieu de Lyon, and had won a gold medal from the Societe de Chirurgie de Paris; his lip repair operation consisted of removing the lower lip, drawing together the soft tissues from either side, and enlarging the contracted mouth by excising two triangles from the upper lip at the angles of the mouth. Desgranges is not noticed in Hirsch; Zeis cites only the present work (in journal form) and another journal article on the reunion of completely separated parts. This copy was presented to Auguste Nelaton, whose Elemens de pathologie chirurgicale (1844-59; G-M 5597) includes chapters on plastic operations; see Zeis 605. Zeis / Patterson 1321.
