About this Item

320 x 243 mm. 30 double-page plates. Brown cloth. Fine. LIMITED FACSIMILE EDITION of 100 copies presented by Jerome R. Klingbeil, president of the California Society of Plastic Surgeons, Inc. This is the atlas accompanying the first systematic textbook of plastic surgery of the face. Serre was the chief exponent of the "sliding" or "grench" method, which he applied in his textbook in various facial operations. The method was intended originally for eyelid reconstruction, but was applied to replacing other parts "on the flat." Serre's textbook was the second general work on plastic surgery published in France, and the first with large atlas, which the author urged be perused before the text was read. The thirty highly finished double-page lithographs show before, during and after stages. Gnudi and Webster, p. 324; Dulieu, ed., La Medecine à Montpellier (1990), pp. 197-198; Hirsch, 26574; Zeis, pp. 102-108 and entry 643. J. Norman, 27: 280 (1993), offered the rare textbook and atlas for $6000. He remarked that that offering was "the first set we have handled in more than twenty years.". Bookseller Inventory # M0672
