Abstract

It contains illustrations which the text (in rough summarized translations of Paré's French) are described on one side as face and eye masks for adults and children that will correct vision problems, and on the other side artificial noses. (The text also describes a method by which a nose that had been cut off could be reattached after it was first grafted to the patient's arm and then re-grafted to the face).
