    De lducation dun homme sauvage,

    ou des premiers développemens physiques et moraux du jeune sauvage de l’Aveyron.
    First edition of Itard's first account of his attempted education of Victor, the Wild Boy of Aveyron. Itard was a French physician noted for his work with deaf-mutes, but his attempts to educate Victor were a failure. Some have considered this to be the first documented case of autism. Though that diagnosis is controversial, Victor of Aveyron is probably the best-known feral child of the Enlightenment era, made famous more recently through François Truffaut's 1970 film L'Enfant Sauvage.
