Clinique Medicale de L'Hotel-Dieu de Paris, by A. Trousseau.
Published 1865, Paris by J.-B. Bailliere et Fils.
3 volumes, each c. 800 pages. Text in French. Second Edition, revised and augmented. A monumental work, quite heavy.

Attractive antiquarian full leather binding, slightly raised bands, gilt title lettering & compartment decorations, embossed ruled covers.

Set is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. 

Bindings gently age worn but still appealing, covers, leather and joints scuffed, rubbed and with some surface cracking (all covers strongly and well attached), leather still supple,  set remains overall clean and very attractive as an object.

Text block paper is gently age toned as typical, internally set remains mostly clean, tight and sound. A set which has been taken care of but may/ does not look like new.

Still bright and very attractive on the shelf. Set displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in rather nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws seem easy to overlook or forgive. 

Please review photos for more detailed attempt to present this set as it survives. 

We often over-describe any flaws that many sellers would not even bother to mention since most people would overlook them as minor and unworthy of comment. Many people tell us the books they receive from us are nicer in person than it appears on the screen. We want you to be clear about what you are buying, so we take many photos and try to describe it clearly.

Book Measures c. 9" H x 6" W.
