The death in 1830 of Louis-Henri-Joseph de Bourbon, prince de Condé, by asphyxiation was rumored to be suicide or murder, and perhaps political assassination. Gendrin (1796-1890) was a "docteur en médecine, médecin du Bureau central des hôpitaux de Paris, membre de la Société de Médecine de Paris, Lyon, Philadelphie et Louvain; [et] redacteur des Transactions medicales, Journal de Médecine pratique." This is his forensic medical account of the death. It includes bibliographical references. "Mémoire extrait du cahier de mars des Transactions médicales, etc." (title-page).
        Provenance: From the residue of the stock of the F. Thomas Heller bookselling firm (est. ca. 1928).
        WorldCat and NUC combine to locate only five U.S. libraries reporting ownership.

Original blue-green wrappers, but detached. Untrimmed copy. Dust -soiling, some foxing, some dog-earing. An interesting and early example of medical jurisprudence.  (39697)   Please RESHELVE This.
