Éditeur : London: Simpkin, Marshall, and Co. 1858.
Date d'édition : 1858
12mo, pp. xii, (13)-123, (1), + advert leaf before the half-title. Original rose blind-stamped cloth, lettered in gilt, spine faded to brown, extremities slightly worn and soiled. Signature of J. Laws on title; also of Richard Shufflebothm, 1876, on front endpaper; bookplate of J. Colin Dagnall, the historian of chiropody (see below). Third edition, second (dated) issue. See G&M 4325 (first edition of 1845, which was illustrated). This book gave the first description of anterior metatarsalgia (later designated Morton's metatarsalgia), plantar digital neuritis, oncycophosis, Durlacher's corn, etc. It placed chiropody on a scientific basis, and is, in the opinion of J.C. Dagnall, the most important book in the literature. In his preface, Durlacher comments that ?the present edition is not, however, a mere reprint of the second [of 1850], but has been considerably altered in its form and arrangement.? Although Durlacher says there was a second edition, no copy seems to be extant. This issue with a reset title-page is dated, and has the misprint ?lining? on p. 113 corrected to ?lacing? See Dagnall, ?The history of chiropodial literature?, in The Chiropodist, 1965. N° de réf. du libraire 2343
