The "Wound Man"

Back to Back to Paré's Apologie and Treatise

The "Wound Man" on the title-page of the 1952 edition of The Apologie and Treatiste of Ambroise Paré is a reduced reproduction of the wood engraving on the title-page of the first English edition of The Method of Curing Wounds made by Gun-shot, London, 1617. The only extant copy is in the Bodleian Library, Oxford; the Publishers are indebted to Bodley's Librarian for a photograph. (courtesey of the University of Chicago, publishers of the Apologie)
