About this Item: Maisonneuve & Larose. Couverture souple. Condition: Comme neuf. Edition originale. Paris 2002. 1 Volume/1. -- Comme Neuf -- Broché collé. Format 21,6 x 13,8 cm . ------- 269 pages. ************** "" Le regard ici posé sur le vaudou est celui d'un ethnologue et philosophe autant que théologien. L'interprétation qu'il donne du vaudou est nouvelle : elle est présentée comme une vision du monde originale et comme l'effort d'un peuple pour s'affirmer contre les conditions dramatiques de son histoire, qui l'ont fait passer de l'esclavage et de la domination étrangère au sous-développement et à la dictature politique. Et cette interprétation, malgré, ou plutôt à cause de la rigueur scientifique qui l'étaye, constitue le plus éloquent des cris de révolte et des plaidoyers en faveur d'un peuple opprimé. Du point de vue humain et scientifique, ce qui passionnera dans cet ouvrage, c'est l'ardeur avec laquelle, sans, bien entendu, faire l'apologie du vaudou, Laënnec Hurbon s'efforce de cerner sa signification profonde comme « langage propre " d'un peuple placé dans des conditions historiques, économiques et sociales telles qu'il ne pouvait survivre qu'en trouvant lui-même sa propre réponse, qu'en s'affirmant dans ses propres « modes originaux d'exister ". On sort de ce livre attachant convaincu que le vaudou constitue pour les masses haïtiennes une solution de survie parce qu'il les aide à prendre conscience d'elles-mêmes et à s'assurer contre l'existence malheureuse, en « recousant les déchirures du tissu du monde "". **********************.

About this Item: Samuel Wood and Son, N.Y., 1832. Half Cloth, Paper-Covered Bds. First American Edition. viii, 120p., frontispiece with four figures. A good copy, spine has been covered and reinforced with black vinyl electrical tape, the forecorners and some of the edges of the covers are somewhat worn, and there is moderate foxing throught the text. The frontispiece has four figures which show the "stethoscope as invented by the great Laennec" (p. xviii). Laennec first published his findings in French in 1819 and it was published again in 1826 in French in a much extended edition. It was published in English in 1832 in London and New York. As Sharpe was a member of the Royal College of Surgeons it is likely that the British edition preceded the American. The material in brackets in the title was supplied by the British Library Catalogue. This book is an epitome or a condensation put together by Laennec's cousin for students. Size: 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall. Seller Inventory # 019578

About this Item: Longman, Rees, Orme et al., London, 1834. Fourth edition in English. 8vo. xliv, 676 pp. Two plates. Contemporary half cloth. "This book revolutionized the study of diseases of the chest. Auscultation in the instrumental sense dates from Laennec's invention of the stethoscope (at first merely a roll of stiff paper) with a view to amplifying the sound of the heart's action. The work illustrates his wooden stethoscope, which could be purchased from the publishers, and which was advertised for sale on the original printed wrappers of the first edition. Laennec was considered the greatest teacher of his time on tuberculosis. Indeed, it was in elaboration of his investigation of the disease that he invented the stethoscope. He established the fact that all phthisis is tuberculous, described pneumothorax and distinguished pneumonia from the various kinds of bronchitis and from pleuritis. 'Laennec's cirrhosis' - chronic interstitial hepatitis - is described on p. 368 of Vol. 1. The second edition, 1826, is even more important, since it gives not only the various physical signs elicited in the chest, but adds the pathological anatomy, diagnosis, and treatment of each disease encountered. Laennec died of tuberculosis at the early age of 45" (Garrison-Morton-Norman 2673, 3219, 3614, first edition in French, 1819).

About this Item: Frontis. port. & six engraved plates (three of which are double-page & two are hand-colored). 1 p.l., xxxi, 862 pp. Thick 8vo, orig. cloth-backed boards (joints repaired), printed paper label on spine (defective). London: H. Bailliere, 1846. First edition in English to be translated and annotated by Francis Hopkins Ramadge (1793-1867), a physician specializing in diseases of the lungs. This edition replaced the controversial translation by John Forbes which first appeared in 1821. Forbes' translation was "criticized for rearranging and shortening the original, and especially for altering Laënnec's terminology in describing the lung sounds found at auscultation. In 1823 Forbes wrote to Laënnec, apologizing for the liberties he had taken in his translation."-ODNB. "Laennec was undoubtedly the most prominent French internist of his day. His ingenious use of a roll of paper as a first stethoscope opened an entirely new field of physical diagnosis, and by this means he virtually created the physical diagnosis of pulmonary diseases, giving clear, concise definitions of phthisis, pneumothorax, emphysema, etc.?His invention of the stethoscope was the most important advance in physical diagnosis between Auenbrugger's introduction of percussion in 1761 and Roentgen's discovery of X-rays in 1895."-Heirs of Hippocrates 1364. Nice copy. ? Garrison-Morton 2673-(referring to the 1st French ed.). Seller Inventory # 5429
