SAKOSKY, [Albert].

Coup d'oeil sur les imperfections de la chaussure, et les incommodités qui en proviennent, suivi de l'examen d'un procédé ingénieux qui a l'avantage de corriger les unes et de faire disparaître ou prévenir les autres.

A Paris: Chez l’auteur…de l’imprimerie de Didot Jeune. .1811

8vo, pp. xvi, 86, (2) blank. Some light foxing. Later blue roan. Bookplates of Walter Seelig and J. Colin Dagnall, historians of chiropody.

FIRST EDITION of a very rare monograph on the anatomy and function of the foot, on the effect of footwear, and on the ways of altering and correcting footwear to ensure a better fit. The last part describes shoe stretchers, for which Sakosky was granted an imperial patent.
