FIRST EDITION of Regnier's rare work on the pustule. PROVENANCE: Caspar Wistar Pennock (1799-1867) was a Philadelphia physician whose papers are housed at the American Philosophical Society. In an 1836 article entitled "On the Malignant Pustule, with Cases," Pennock cites Regnier, saying, "Excision of the pustule has been attempted, but the melancholy history of the cases where it has been resorted to, have proved to be extremely hazardous," with an asterisk referencing Regnier pp. 23-24 (Pennock, p. 24). He authored several works, ranging in focus from the heart and arteries to observations of cholera in Paris to anatomy. Pennock, Caspar Wistar. "On the malignant pustule, with cases."
