About this Item

Bouisson, Eugène Frédéric (1813-84). Tribut à la chirurgie, ou mémoires sur divers sujets de cette science. 2 vols., 4to. x, 564; [4], 576pp. 21 lithographed plates; lacking plate 4. Paris: Baillière; Montpellier: Patras [etc.], 1858-61. 263 x 212 mm. Modern quarter cloth, marbled boards, boards a little warped. Minor spotting, faint dampstains on some leaves, but very good apart from missing plate. First Edition. Bouisson, a former pupil of Delpech, was professor of clinical surgery at the University of Montpellier when he published the present collection of articles on various aspects of surgery. The collection includes three noteworthy papers on subjects in plastic surgery: "Nouveau procédé de rhinoplastie ayant pour but de conserver la regularité du contour des narines" (Zeis 718), describing the "méthode française" of reconstructing the nose from cheek flaps; "Recherches sur les fissures congénitales des lèvres, ou des variétés et des causes du bec-de-lièvre" (Zeis 1574), on harelip; and an amplification of Bouisson's important paper on the surgical treatment of hypospadias, or failure of the ventral wall of the urethra (see Zeis 2155). Also of considerable interest here is Bouisson's paper on oral cancer in smokers, in which he discusses the etiology and surgical treatment of tumors of the lip caused by tobacco use, based on 72 case histories-one of the earliest detailed clinical studies of tobacco-related cancers. Other papers in the collection deal with amputation of the penis, subcutaneous tumors, fractures and luxations, tumors of bone, and a brief account of the lives and surgical careers of Dupuytren and Delpech. Hirsch, noting that Bouisson "served surgery well" through his writings. Bookseller Inventory # 33704
