An important book in the history of lithotomy, as Le Dran evaluates the different methods of lithotomy just coming into use, with an account of his own experiences. In particular he discusses the methods of Rau and Cheselden, and in the Suite those of Foubert, Thomas, Le Cat, and Frère Côme. Le Dran made many improvements to lithotomy, and is credited by Murphy as the originator of the lateral operation usually attributed to Cheselden.

The Suite, published 26 years after the original work, is rare, and not normally found with it. N° de réf. du libraire 651
