About this Item

Le Cat, Claude Nicolas (1700-1768). Parallele de la taille laterale . . . avec celle du lithotome-cache. 8vo. xiv, 16, 292, [12]pp. 7 folding plates. Amsterdam: Rey, 1766. 193 x 124 mm. Quarter sheep c. 1766, rubbed but internally fine. Gilt leather bookplate. First Edition. Le Cat's summary work on the famous controversy between his gorgeret-cystitome and Frere Cume's lithotome-cache, which went on for 20 years. Famed in the sciences as well as surgery, Le Cat organized the Royal Academy of Sciences of Rouen and took on the likes of Haller and Rousseau in disputes. He invented several devices for lithotomy, of which the gorgeret-cystitome was the most ingenious. It was a multipurpose instrument that acted as a gorgeret when closed, a dilator when opened lengthways, and a lithotome when a blade was pushed out from its convex margin. To facilitate its use it had a button on the beak of the cystitome and the edges of the groove in the sound were turned in so that the blade could not become disengaged. While Le Cat had the support of most lithotomists for his device, the lithotome-cache when suitably modified proved its worth over and above the doubtful reputation of the surgeon-priest Fr. Cume.
