SCHEDEL, Henry Edward
Abrégé pratique des maladies de la peau.Paris: Béchet jeune, 1828.
This book codified and published the lectures, doctrines and observations of Laurent Biett (1781-1840), the leading clinical teacher in dermatology of the early 19th century, who published very little himself. Cazenave was a master clinician who founded the first scientific periodical devoted exclusively to dermatology. The Abrégé improves upon Bateman, especially in the section on the cutaneous manifestions of syphilis. “Continually revised and translated into all of the important languages of the Western World, the Abrégé becamethe most influential text of the time and remained so for 30 years” (Crissey & Parish). English translations 1829, 1832, 1842.
