Third edition (the first was issued in 1817 with 24 plates) of this ambitious and luxurious publication of which only the first volume appeared. With this work Alibert intended to describe the diseases of the human body classified by the name of the organ from which they originate. This first volume describes 10 families: Gastroses - Enteroses - Choloses - Uroses - Pneumonoses - Angioses - Leucoses - Adenoses - Ethmoplecoses - Blennoses.

Alibert was chief physician at the Saint-Louis Hospital (1768-1837), first ordinary physician of King Charles X and founder of the French school of dermatology.
