Description des maladies de la peau observées à l’hôpital Saint Louis.

Paris: Barrois, 1806.

The largest and most spectacular of the early classics of dermatology, with hand-colored illustrations unsurpassed for their quality of execution. The illustrations are also the first on the subject in a French book. This book also contains the first description of mycosis fungoides (pian fungoide, framboesia mycoides), one of several conditions to which the name of Alibert has been attached.

This unfinished work with 22 spectacular plates included some full body images of patients, and unlike other illustrated works by Alibert, it concerned more than skin diseases. Vol. 2 was never published but a second, posthumous edition with 33 plates appeared in 1838.

Monographie des dermatoses.

Paris: Daynac, 1832.

This includes the first published illustration of Alibert’s famous “family tree” for the classification of skin diseases, a concept which Alibert borrowed freely from Torti (No. 5231). This classification was never widely adopted. The book contains an important description of dermatolysis.
