Title:
Traite ou reflexions tirees de la pratique sur les playes d'armes a feu
Description:
Although the Countway's collections have long held copies of the second (1740) and also the 1748 and 1759 editions of Le Dran's famous treatise on gunshot wounds and military surgery, as well as the first English translation from 1743, this fine copy of the first French edition, with Le Dran's autograph on the title-page, has just been added to the collection. The library now holds all the Parisian editions of the Traite produced during Le Dran's lifetime.
