Fine photogravure portrait of Dr. Dolon whose legacy was printed on the hearts of the Saint-Cyr patients he served. His one contribution to the literature was a monograph on medical logic titled, Du syllogisme dans les sciences médicales (Paris: Rignoux, 1852).
Corlieu, on the other hand, was a prominent medical scholar and librarian, distinguished by his writings on the Paris Faculté de Médecine and the author of a great number of ancient and modern medical histories and biographies. He also wrote on historical medical cases including the fistule of King Louis XIV and the deaths of Louis XVII and Charles IX.
