About this work

Description

Duplanil, docteur en médecine de la Faculté de Montpellier, etc. Quatrième édition, revu [sic] corrigé [sic] et augmenté [sic] sur la septième édition de Londres. The title-page of Vol. II is dated 'MDCCLXXVIII', that of Vol. III is correctly given as 'MDCCLXXXVIII'. In both cases 'An sept de la République' is written beneath the above dates, and is presumably the date when the MS. was copied.
