FIRST EDITION. G&M 5763.01: “A masterpiece of 20th century plastic surgery, and Joseph’s most comprehensive work.” The numerous illustrations include some of the earliest explicit pre- and postoperative photographs in the literature. “The clinical work of Jacques Joseph of Berlin and his magnificent treatise on operative technics for rhinoplasty and other plastic procedures, published in 1931, may be mentioned as a great modern outgrowth of the seeds sown by Gaspare Tagliacozzi” (Gnudi & Webster). Very scarce.
