Grouping of antique French medical dictionary’s of the sciences. Unfortunately, it’s not a complete set. I have a volume one, volume four, volume eight, volume nine, volume 10, volume seven, volume six, and volume 13. The books are in very good condition. One does have a rip in the leather at the spine, but that could be repaired, and at the very top of one there are some missing leather. The bindings are very tight and the pages are in excellent condition. Each book has the deckled marble pages on the exterior and interior in vibrant blue the books date to 1830. There is only one book that has some black-and-white drawings of what looked to be medical instruments. I could find no other drawings in any of the books.
imagine what was happening in our time in France in 1830. These books were there for that. Over 190 years old. And in this condition is very rare to find. There’s a small piece of paper with a name on it, which was found inside the books, so I’m guessing they must have originally belonged to him.
these books are stored off site. They are not available for viewing at either store, but could be made available for viewing or pick up in our Princeton Massachusetts or Hudson Massachusetts location.
