Die plastische Chirurgie nach ihren bisherigen - AMMON, Friedrich August von & B - 1842. 
xxvi, 310 pp. 8vo, cont. patterned green cloth, spine nicely gilt in the Romantic style, a.e.g. Berlin: G. Reimer, 1842. First edition and a lovely copy of this notable work on plastic surgery, one of the most comprehensive works on the subject up to that time. Ammon (1799-1861), was also well known in the field of ophthalmology for his great atlas of eye pathology, the best summary of knowledge of eye diseases before the invention of the ophthalmoscope. In plastic surgery, Ammon exerted a tremendous influence through his critical reports and his publication of new methods, especially for the areas of the lips and eye lids. Ammon was Zeis's teacher. A very fine and pretty copy with the stamp of Doctor Monoyer, professor of the Paris Faculty of Medicine on title. With the added title page announcing this book was awarded the prize of the Medical Society of Ghent. ? Garrison-Morton 5744. Gnudi & Webster, p. 325. Zeis 463.
