Traité théorique et pratique des maladies de la peau, Pierre-François Olive Rayer's three-volume work on skin diseases, was first published in 1826 and received with acclaim. For the second edition, published in 1835, the work was completely revised and accompanied by an atlas with 26 finely detailed, hand-colored plates engraved by Ambroise Tardieu, which are digitized here. Tardieu was a renowned engraver and cartographer of his day.
