Hair Transplants in 1826

And I thought this was a new thang;

"Signor Nardo recounts the results of experiments made on his own person in the transplantation of hair, and relates, that by transplanting quickly a hair, with its root, from a pore of his head, into a pore of his chest, easily to be accomplished by

widening the pore somewhat with the point of a needle, introducing the root with nicety,

and exciting within the pore itself, by friction, a slight degree of inflammation,

the hair takes root, continues to vegetate, and grows; in due season changes colour, becomes white, and falls."
