Frédéric Jules SICHEL (1802-1868), entomologist... - Lot 71 - Conan Belleville Hôtel d'Ainay
Frédéric Jules SICHEL (1802-1868), entomologist and ophthalmologist. Letter signed to "dear colleague" [Félix Giraud-Teulon (1816-1887), ophthalmologist]. 3 pp. in-12. 27 Feb. 1868. He gives his son, Alexis Giraud-Teulon, a copy of his Recueil de pierres sigillaires d'oculistes romains, which he holds at his disposal. "I have just seen with pleasure that the scientific researches of your son begin to spread outside in the learned world. An interesting work is announced from him, The Mother among the ancients". He offers him an exchange. "For a month I have been almost always in bed, and I have applied many leeches. Even now I am dictating these lines in my bed. I get up only a few hours a day and only go out when absolutely necessary [...]". He signs with trembling handwriting [he will die a few months later].
