Sydenham, Thomas. - Médecine pratique de Sydenham, avec des notes ; Ouvrage traduit en François, sur la dernière édition Angloise, Par feu M. A.F. Jault, Docteur en Médecine, et Professeur au College Royal. Paris, P. Fr Didot le jeune, 1774. In-8, bound in contemporary fawn calf, red edges, spine ribbed and decorated - lower headband frayed, upper headband, spine ends and corners rubbed, some superficial spotting on the boards - [2 ff.], xj, 728 pp. First edition of this translation. Sydenham (1624-1689) is considered the father of English medicine. Hermann Boerhaave considered that one could only refer to two authors: Hippocrates among the ancients, Sydenham among the moderns. His contributions to the various branches of internal medicine were considerable, particularly in the description and treatment of fevers and gout (he suffered from it). His treatise on practical medicine was translated into many languages. His Practical Medicine was not "practical" in name only: Sydenham always put forward the experience and the knowledge acquired at the patient's bed.
