THE world's first nose jobs have been revealed in a 16th century book put up for auction.

The rare work is written in Lat in and i l l u s t r a t e d w i t h diag rams such as a patient's nose attached to a flap of skin from his upper arm.

N o s e j o b s a r e considered a modern phenomenon but the book shows they were used 400 years ago.

The surgery wasn't for vanity - but used to repair battle wounds.

The book sold for pounds 11,000 at an auction in Gloucestershire - to a plastic surgeon.
