Cinq livres, de la manière de nourrir et gouverner les enfans dès leur naissance.

Poitiers: de Mamesz, & Bouchetz, freres, 1565.

The first French work on pediatrics. Vallambert considered a wider range of diseases than any previous writer, including the first reference to syphilis in children, and gave the best commentary up to his time on infant feeding, including the first mention of baby-feeding apparatus.
