    MEDICAL CURIOSITIES. A very nice pocket edition of this treatise by Pierre
    Dumanchaux in which many strange, curios and indeed bizarre medical cases are
    reported. Some are just very curious stories including those of an alleged patient
    that loses its memory during summer times and especially in hot days, and that of
    an excessively vigorous catalan husband on whom a limit had to be put on the number of times he
    could enjoy sexual intercourse with his wife ( no more than six times per night, compared to his
    previous ten which was deemed excessive) other case include those of a person said to be an incredible
    eater, able to eat an entire pig, and so on. Mentioned are also medical practices of faraway territories like
    China, the middle and far East, and many other anecdotal sources. Definitely an interesting and
    amusing reading for any practitioner.
    Two parts bound together in one volume. Contemporary binding in half morocco, four raised bands
    and gilt letter piece on spine, woodcut head and tail pieces in text, with some woodcut decorated initial.
    Good interiors, with usual spotting and foxing due to age and kind of paper.
