Auf der Grundlage seiner eigenen internationalen Ausbildung und großen theoretischen wie praktischen Erfahrung stellte Sckell die Gartenkunst in einen Kontext mit Malerei, Architektur und Städtebau und entwickelte frühe Konzepte zum Denkmalschutz. Die Modernität seiner Verbindung von Garten- und Stadtbaukunst zeigt sich in deren bis ins 20. Jahrhundert reichenden Reflexen" (NDB, XXII, 145). - Mit interessanter Provenienz: Das unbezeichnete gest.

        De l'emploi des chlorures d'oxide de sodium et de chaux (Paris, 1825). Manière de se servir du chlorure d'oxide de sodium, soit pour panser les plaies de mauvaise nature, soit comme moyen d'assainissement des lieux insalubres et de désinfection des matières animales (Paris, impr. de Mme Huzard, s. d.)

      Paris, impr. Mme Hazard, août 1825. - 1 vol. in-8, 48 pp., broché, couverture muette postérieure (papier marbré XIXe s.) et 1 plaquette in-4 (replié en deux et placé dans le volume), 4 pp. ; très bon état. Editions originales, rare pour la brochure et rarissime pour la plaquette jointe. Labarraque démontre, outre les importantes propriétés antiputrides du chlorure de chaux, les propriétés désinfectantes des solutions de chlore. Il préfère l'eau de Javel à base de soude plutôt que celle à base de potasse alors utilisée. Il propose une solution ("liqueur de Labarraque"), représentant le premier agent désinfectant et dont l'utilisation marqua le début de l'antiseptie en chirurgie. Il rapporte plusieurs observations de chirurgiens célèbres (Marjolin, J. Cloquet, Lisfranc.). Labarraque expose dans la plaquette jointe la manière d'utiliser le chlorure d'oxyde de sodium (dilution. ), notamment pour panser les plaies "de mauvaise nature". La liqueur de Labarraque fut largement utilisée lors des épidémies de choléra de 1832. Cette importante découverte valut à son auteur le prix Montyon en 1825 et la célébrité. Antoine Germain Labarraque (1777-1850) fut pharmacien militaire et devint l'élève du grand chimiste Chaptal ; il fut élu membre de l'Académie de Médecine. Cf. pour la brochure : Garrison & Morton, 5633 : "First chlorine solution for disinfecting purposes" ; Wangensteen & Wangensteen, The rise of surgery, 319 ; The Haskell F. Norman Library, 1245 : "Labarraque issued this privately printed memoir. Labarraque's solution was the first disinfecting agent, and its application represents the first use of antisepsis in surgery" ; Waring, Bibliotheca Therapeutica, p. 142.
