I am writing on behalf of an art and architectural historian of 17th c. France, Robert W. Berger, who is hoping that a medical historian will be interested in utilizing his translation of a case study, written in Bordeaux in 1669, in a work of medical history. Having seen the brief translation, I agree that it could be of interest, certainly for teaching purposes. Please respond directly to him at: firstname.lastname@example.org . What follows is his description of the material in 2 emails to me.
