About this Item

Contemporary full calf. Joints weak, spine rubbed. Second edition, much expanded from Chapman's 1755 translation of Astruc's De morbis veneris, Books II-IV. Astruc (1685-1766), a professor of anatomy in Paris, was an eminent historian of syphilis who utilized pathological anatomy in his studies of the venereal diseases. He was later personal physician to kings in France and Poland. Chapman was a physician in Aberdeen and a Licentiate of the College of Physicians. In his lengthy introduction, he notes that he will quote all those physicians who have deviated from Astruc's methods or have introduced newer methods, including his own observations, which are sprinkled liberally throughout.
