Paris: J.-B. Baillière, 1840.

Billings considered Malgaigne “the greatest surgical historian and critic the world has ever seen”; Leonardo (No. 5812) says that his greatest contribution to surgery was his unique manner of evaluating surgical techniques and innovations by which the then new methods of statistical computation were conjoined with actual surgical experiments. This work was also published in vol. 1 of No. 59. English translation by W. Hamby, Norman, Oklahoma, 1965. Digital facsimile of the 1840 edition from the Internet Archive at this link.
