Catalogue Note

RARE FIRST EDITION. "The Cinq Livres contains all new material. It has been called by several serious writers Paré's chef-d'oeuvre... In it appears the first description of the fracture of the head of the femur (p.94). Secondly, it is the first appearance of the whole teaching of bandages, fractures, and dislocations which has come down to us from the ancients, broadened by Paré's own experience... It is undoubtedly one of his most important works" (Doe, p.69).
