Nouveaux secours pour les corps arrêtés dans l'oesophage; ou description de quatre instrumens plus propres qu'aucun des anciens moyens à retirer ces corps par la bouche.Lausanne, François Grasset & compagnie, 1769. 12mo (16.5 x 9 cm). With a folding engraved plate by Chovin after designs by the author. Modern boards.
Blake, p. 470; David 275; Hirsch V, p. 725; not in Garrison & Morton. First edition of a medical treatise dealing with problems of the human oesophagus (gullet) by the Swiss doctor Jean-André Venel (1740-1791). He describes the use of some new instruments, designed by Venel himself, for removing (via the mouth) any odd pieces of food or other things stuck in a person's gullet. These new instruments are clearly shown on the engraved plate. With a faint owner's inscription of "Mr Boidin(?)" at the head of title-page. Title-page slightly thumbed, otherwise in very good condition.
