Dupuytren, Guillaume (1777-1835). Clinical lectures on surgery, delivered at Hotel Dieu, in 1832. . . . Translated by A. Sidney Doane. 8vo. 312pp. Philadelphia: De Silver, Jr. & Thomas, 1833. 215 x 136 mm. Cloth ca. 1833, rebacked. Some foxing and browning as usual. Very good copy. 19th century ownership inscription on front endpaper.
First Edition in English of the first volume of Dupuytren's Lecons orales de clinique chirurgicale (4 vols., 1832-34; see Garrison-Morton 5590 & 4322). This volume contains new information on Dupuytren's contracture, as well as important material on burns and fractures; Dupuytren was the first to accurately describe the local effects of burns, and to differentiate between provisional and definitive callus in fractures. The preface to this translation states that the other volumes of Dupuytren's lectures are "translating, and will be published immediately"; however, this appears not to have taken place. (A volume entitled Lectures on Clinical Surgery, published in Washington D.C. in 1835, contains translations of selected lectures from the Lecons.) Cordasco 30-0292, recording a different imprint.
