Nelaton, a doctor of great renown, has had numerous medical and surgical phenomena dubbed with his name: Nelaton's catheter, Nelaton's syndrome, Nelaton's probe (porcelain-tipped for locating bullets), and the list goes on. Here he is reproduced in the highly regarded publication Galerie Contemporaine; and included in this lot are 4 accompanying pages from the publication documenting, among other things, a letter in his own handwriting and his various life accomplishments (one page is reproduced here). Dr. Paul Labarthe is the author. A charming and informative set.
