Sewn as issued.

Second Copy Known of this fixed-price stock subject catalog devoted to 18th-century medicine, natural history, chemistry, anatomy, pharmacy, surgery and diet. Exclusively in French (including French translation) or Latin, the three hundred entries are alphabetic by author or title and include the format, place and date of publication and the number of volumes — single volumes of sets are often offered separately. The then most prominent English, German, Dutch and French physicians and scientists dominate the list, with mineralogy, books of secrets and winemaking offered as well. The books were published in twenty-six cities, from Jena to Edinburgh and Rome to Regensburg — witness to the international character of these fields. In original condition (lightly foxed, first and last leaves more so); a contemporary annotator (?in Cavelier’s shop) added two titles to the main run and supplied one price and nine titles on cholera, fevers and poisons to the final blank verso.
