- Dr Tissot originally had his books published at Zurich in German by Messrs: Heidegger. Then thereafter a second French edition in Paris, followed by a third at Rotterdam. Sometime later an Italian edition was published. It must have been a popular work. The list of contents appears to cover all types of ailments, both male and female. An interesting read, but definitely of its time.
