.

PIERRE SIMON ROUHAULT (17th century-1740) was a French surgeon, member of the Académie de Sciences and personal physician of the prince of Savoy Vittorio Amedeo II, who wanted him in Turin.
Rouhault was also appointed professor of anatomy in the Royal University of the town and chief physician of the Savoy army, so that his highly advanced knowledge in the medical matter could improve both the formation of the new generations and the health of the soldiers of Piedmont.

Light occasional foxing due to the quality of the paper, a small tear at the basis of the folding plates, overall a very good copy.
