Most widely held works by Pierre Chasselat
Jerusalem delivered by Torquato Tasso( Book )

2 editions published between 1810 and 1819 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great sixteenth-century poet vividly imagines the end of the First Crusade, led by Godfrey of Bouillon, and the taking of Jerusalem. This decidedly fictional 1581 account, influenced by Homer and Virgil as well as Ariosto's Orlando Furioso, is heavily seasoned with romance, intrigue, and sorcery. Tasso's poem inspired painters, playwrights, and librettists for centuries. Verse translation by Edward Fairfax

Ange-Bernard Imbert-Delonnes. Drawing by P. Chasselat, 1799-1800 by Pierre Chasselat( Visual )

in French and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ange-Bernard Imbert Delonnes (1747-1818) is known from his writings, and from writings about him, as a fearless surgeon, reproached for his boldness but defiant of criticism and proud of his achievements, whose career in France under the Ancien Régime, the Revolution and the Empire took many twists and turns. Many details in the drawing have led to the identification of the sitter as Imbert Delonnes, and together they form part of his reply to his critics: an Apologia pro vita sua. The manuscript on his desk is of a work on the Progress of the art of healing. In the bottom left corner is a portrait painting (within the portrait) of one of his famous patients, Perier de Gurat. In the top right corner is another portrait, this time of Imbert Delonnes's role model, the French surgeon Ambroise Paré (1510?-1590), and books by Paré are shown in the bottom left. The verses inscribed beneath the portrait praising Imbert Delonnes's contributions to the arts of surgery ("De son art bienfaisant il agrandit la sphère") and of literature are by Charles Palissot de Montenoy (1730-1814), a playwright and Imbert Delonnes's father-in-law. Imbert Delonnes's library and statue of Aesculapius are represented in the left background. Finally, most conspicuous of all is the object displayed in a huge glass jar: the giant testicular tumour removed by Imbert Delonnes from Charles Delacroix (1741-1805), French Foreign Minister and legally father of the painter Eugène Delacroix (1798-1863), though probably not his biological father, owing to this very tumour (the painter Delacroix's biological father was believed to be Talleyrand)
