About this work


In 1671, King Louis XIV (1638-1715) established the post of demonstrator in operative surgery at the Jardin Royal in Paris and appointed Pierre Dionis (1643?-1718) to conduct the course. Dionis then published this textbook, based on the coursework, in 1707. This example is a second edition from 1714. The work contains illustrations of the instruments required for each operation and these pages show the instruments required for trephination. author: Dionis, Pierre Place made: Paris, Ville de Paris, Île-de-France, France
