FIRST GERMAN EDITION of Sue's important medical - historical treatise on midwifery. Pierre Sue was the most outstanding member of the famous French family of physicians. He was an author, librarian, bibliographer, physician and surgeon. His inaugural dissertation for the degree in surgery, 1763, was a paper on the Cesarean operation. He was professor of surgery, and upon the death of Hevin succeeded him to the chair of therapeutics. In 1794 he became librarian of the Ecole de Sante, also professor of bibliography, and professor of legal medicine. His first literary medical publication was the translation of Gaubius' Pathologie, 1770, which replaced the pathology of Boerhaave. He also published medical anecdotes, biographies, and a nomenclature of medical dissertations. Blake, NLM, p. 438; Hirsch, V, p. 578; Waller 15079. OCLC: 5 copies.
