About This Item

Stuttgart: Editions Medicina Rara, 1975. Hardcover. Very Good. Stuttgart, Editions Medicina Rara, [c. 1975]/ 1714. Folio, xliv, 131 pages plus a frontispiece and 47 full-page plates. Quarter gilt-lettered red leather and black papered boards; covers a little sunned about the spine; a very good copy in the original sturdy slipcase (slightly bumped and rubbed). Copy number 2016 of 2300 copies bound in quarter-leather (with a further 500 copies bound in full leather). Facsimile reprint of the original 1714 edition. Together with the 20-page publisher's introductory pamphlet (front cover lightly creased). Bartolomeo Eustachius (circa 1510/20-1574) completed the plates in 1554. Less stylized than those of his contemporary and antagonist Vesalius, his anatomical illustrations are remarkably accurate despite his support of the old Galenic theories of anatomy. The copper plates remained unpublished in his lifetime and were rediscovered by Giovanni Maria Lancisi, the papal physician, who published them with his own commentaries in 1714. Garrison-Morton 391 (the 1714 edition, but the lengthy note includes the following comment: 'These copperplates are more accurate than the work of Vesalius. Singer was of the opinion that had they appeared in 1552 Eustachius would have ranked with Vesalius as one of the founders of modern anatomy. He discovered the Eustachian tube, the thoracic duct ... and gave the first accurate description of the uterus'). Provenance: Professor Donald Simpson AO (1927-2018), eminent Australian neurosurgeon, with his bookplate.
