De Humani Corporis Fabrica Libri Septem - VESALIUS, Andreas - 1568. 
Printer's woodcut device on title, 20 full-page & about 130 smaller anatomical woodcuts in the text. 6 p.l., 510,  pp. Folio, early 18th-cent. mottled sheep, spine gilt. Venice: F. Franceschi & J. Criegher, 1568. Fourth edition (the third to be illustrated), posthumously published. It is well-printed on durable paper and set up with marginal notes exactly as in the Basel 1555 edition. The woodcuts are slightly reduced. "The new woodcuts for the illustrations, however, were so well executed that the engraver might almost have passed for the same person who in Venice at the behest of Vesalius had cut the original blocks for the larger work."-Cushing p. 92. A nice crisp copy in attractive condition of a book which has become scarce. Bookplates of Piergiorgio Borio, M.D. ? Cushing VI.A.-4.
