About this Item

Orfila, Mathieu J. B. (1787-1853). Secours a donner aux personnes empoisonees ou asphyxiČes. . . . 12mo. xxxvi, 238pp. Lacking final blank. Paris: chez l'auteur; Crochard; Desoer, 1818.165 x 98 mm. Later marbled boards, slightly worn. Very good, crisp copy. First Edition. Orfila is considered the founder of forensic toxicology, a discipline that he established with the publication of his monumental Traite des poisons (1814-15; G-M 2072). The present handbook on poisoning and its remedies, intended for the general public, is based on the Traite; it also includes chapters on asphyxiation and resuscitation, on distinguishing true death from conditions resembling death, on burns, and on the adulteration of wine. Orfila's treatise went through four editions in twelve years, and was translated into both English (Philadelphia, 1818 and numerous subsequent eds.) and Spanish. Bookseller Inventory # 39388
