        Observationes anatomicae

      Venice: apud Jo. Baptistam Recurti, 1724. Venice: apud Jo. Baptistam Recurti, 1724. <p>Heavily Annotated by an 18th-Century Medical Scholar </p><p>Santorini, Giovanni Domenico (1681-1737). Observationes anatomicae. 4to. [12], 250 [i.e., 252]pp. 3 folding engraved plates, the second plate signed by the artist Marcus Galli and the engraver Carlo Orsolini (ca. 1710-ca. 1780). Venice: Giovanni Battista Recurti, 1724. 286 x 208 mm. (uncut). Original carta rustica boards, spine repaired, slight wear. Minor dampstain in upper margins of plates and last approx. 15 leaves, otherwise very good to fine. Extensive scholarly annotations in a legible and attractive 18th-century hand in the margins of several leaves; note on Santorini&#146;s death in the same hand on the front pastedown. </p><p>First Edition. &#147;Santorini was generally acknowledged as the outstanding anatomist of his time, carefully dissecting and delineating many difficult and complex gross features of the human body, such as facial muscles involved in emotional expression, accessory pancreatic ducts, and duodenal papillae. His name has been given to some of these structures, such as the arytenoid cartilages (1724), the risorius muscle, and the plexus pudendalis venosus . . . His most important work was Observationes anatomicae, a valuable exposition of details of human anatomy&#148; (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). The four major anatomical discoveries for which Santorini is known eponymically&#151;Santorini&#146;s cartilage (larynx), Santorini&#146;s vein, Santorini&#146;s duct (pancreas) and Santorini&#146;s caruncula (pancreas / bile duct)&#151;are described in this work. </p><p>This copy of Santorini&#146;s Observationes anatomicae bears numerous marginal annotations and corrections in Latin by an anonymous but remarkably erudite 18th-century medical scholar. Many of the notes are so long and detailed that they appear to represent an ongoing writing project&#151;possibly in preparation for a future corrected edition, although no such edition was ever published (the text in the 1739 second edition of Santorini&#146;s work is unchanged from the first edition). The manuscript notes appear on 34 pages throughout the text; the most extensive notes are on pages 4-5, 63, 98-99, 108, 147, 148-149 and 160. The notes on pages 98-99 are of particular interest in that they comment on (and possibly dispute) Santorini&#146;s description of the laryngeal cartilages. Also remarkable are the notes on pp. 148-149, which comment on Santorini&#146;s description of pulmonary circulation. The notes cite the works of over a dozen medical writers, including Eustachius, Morgagni, Falloppio, Fabricius, Heister, Valverde, Vesalius, Columbo, Cesalpino, Diemerbroeck, Bartholin and Estienne. A few of the notes are dated 1738. The inscription on the inside front cover gives the date of Santorini&#146;s death as May 7, 1737 (&#147;die Maij septima A.D. MDCCXXXVII&#148;) and states that he died of a periodic intermittent fever (&#147;febre periodica intermittente&#148;). Garrison-Morton 392.</p>

'Paul de Rapin, 1661-1725) was educated at the protestant academy of Saumur, and in 1679 became an advocate, but soon afterwards joined the army. The revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685, and the death of his father led him to come to England. From there he went to the Netherlands where he enlisted in a company of French volunteers at Utrecht. He accompanied Willem III to England in 1688, and during the Williamite war in Ireland he took part in the siege of Carrickfergus and the Battle of Boyne, and was wounded at the Siege of Limerick (1690). He resigned in 1693 in order to become tutor to the Earl of Portland's son. After travelling with the boy, he settled with his family in Holland, first at the Hague, then, to save money, at Wesel, in 1707; there he began his great work L'Histoire d' Angleterre. Rapin's history of England was almost the only one available in France in the first half of the 18th century'. Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_de_Rapin

It renews officially, by naming specific individuals, under the reign of Louis XV the interdictions, made by Louis XIV, for Protestants to exercise the trade of booksellers and printers. Frère (Manuel de Bibliographie Normande, I, p. 171, col. 1) devotes a whole page to this affair of forbidding booksellers to work and the suspension of the brothers Calloüe and the family Le Tourneur - a suspension which nevertheless did not impede the Calloüe family being one of the most famous families of printers in Rouen where they worked from 1612 to at least 1753; printing and edition not only many Protestant works but also books in Spanish or translated from the Spanish. There is also a widow Calloüe who died at the Bastille and Jean Calloüe himself fled to England where another member of his family, Denis, translated into French, works that were favorable to King Charles II.z

      Dordrecht, Amsterdam, Joannes van Braam, Gerard onder de Linden, 1724-1726.5 parts in 8 volumes. Folio. Contemporary half calf, spines gilt and with black title-labels (later boards).With engraved allegorical frontispiece, printed title-page in red and black, folding portrait of Valentijn, 19 portraits of the Governors-General, and 326 illustrations, maps, plans, bird's-eye views and plates (most of them double-page or folding; including fragments of Javanese manuscripts).* First edition. - One of the most extensive works on the history of the Far East (including Persia), which never can be superseded as many of the documents of which the author made use, do not longer exist. François Valentijn (1666-1727) was a minister of the Dutch Reformed Church who lived for many years on Amboyna and Java. During this period he collected an enormous mass of information, especially in the fields of history, geography and ethnology, concerning all parts of the world where the Dutch East India Company (VOC) was active: Indonesia, with large parts on Batavia and the Moluccas, Persia, Malacca, Ceylon, India, Cape of Good Hope, Japan, China and Formosa. The work is profusely illustrated with fine engraved maps, plans, portraits and spectacular views. They are engraved by the best artists of the time like F. Ottens, J.C. Philips, G. Schouten, J. Goeree etc. mostly after designs by M. Balen. Apart from the fine engravings the work is of particular interest for its cartography. It contains interesting maps of Australia, probably drawn after manuscript maps now lost. For his descriptions of the natural history of Amboyna Valentijn used i.a. the unpublished 'Amboinsch Dierboek' by the famous naturalist Rumphius, of which the original manuscript has been lost. - (Not inserted and also not mentioned in the plate-index is the portrait of Governor General De Haan). - With bookplates of J.C. Pabst and A.A.H. Stolk. - A truely desirable copy.Tiele 1121; Cat. NHSM p.502; Landwehr, VOC, 467; Ruinen C 44; Alt-Japan-Katalog 1570; Cordier, Bibl.

With engraved allegorical frontispiece, printed title-page in red and black, folding portrait of Valentijn, 19 portraits of the Governors-General, and 326 illustrations, maps, plans, bird's-eye views and plates (most of them double-page or folding; including fragments of Javanese manuscripts).* First edition. - One of the most extensive works on the history of the Far East (including Persia), which never can be superseded as many of the documents of which the author made use, do not longer exist. François Valentijn (1666-1727) was a minister of the Dutch Reformed Church who lived for many years on Amboyna and Java. During this period he collected an enormous mass of information, especially in the fields of history, geography and ethnology, concerning all parts of the world where the Dutch East India Company (VOC) was active: Indonesia, with large parts on Batavia and the Moluccas, Persia, Malacca, Ceylon, India, Cape of Good Hope, Japan, China and Formosa. The work is profusely illustrated with fine engraved maps, plans, portraits and spectacular views. They are engraved by the best artists of the time like F. Ottens, J.C. Philips, G. Schouten, J. Goeree etc. mostly after designs by M. Balen. Apart from the fine engravings the work is of particular interest for its cartography. It contains interesting maps of Australia, probably drawn after manuscript maps now lost. For his descriptions of the natural history of Amboyna Valentijn used i.a. the unpublished 'Amboinsch Dierboek' by the famous naturalist Rumphius, of which the original manuscript has been lost. - (Not inserted and also not mentioned in the plate-index is the portrait of Governor General De Haan). - With bookplates of J.C.

Bella legatura coeva in piena pergamena con titolo manoscritto da mano coeva al dorso, una pecetta in pergamena anticamente applicata al piatto anteriore, ininfluente, e per il resto esemplare in buone-ottime condizioni di conservazione. L'esemplare presenta una carta bianca aggiunta all'inizio e alla fine del volume. Questo esemplare è unico in quanto pur non presentando il ritratto dell'autore presente nelle altre copie conosciute, è l'unico esemplare censito in ICCU e bibliografie che presenta un numero di 20 tavole fuori testo (comprese le 3 più volte ripiegate) invece delle 17 presenti negli altri esemplari. Quindi questo esemplare possiede tre tavole completamente sconosciute alle altre copie. Trattasi probabilmente di esemplare di presentazione o prova. Marco Aurelio Severino (Tarsia provincia Cosenza, 1580 - Napoli, 1656) fu celebre lettore di Anatomia e Chirurgia nello Studio di Napoli dal 1622 al 1645, nonché medico di chirurgia pratica presso il nosocomio degli Incurabili di Napoli. Teorico e operatore diretto di una chirurgia attiva detta da lui stesso 'del medicar crudo', fu valente anatomista e pubblicò la Zootomia democritea la prima opera di anatomia comparata. Fu tra i più celebri medici e chirurghi del suo tempo e sembra che sia stato allievo di Tommaso Campanella, di Giulio Iasolino. Fu tra i primi chirurghi ad operare certi tipi di pazienti tanto che già nel 1625 scrisse "Ho fatto per primo questo tipo di operazione in Napoli, essendo tuttavia stato contestato al principio da altri medici, che protestarono presso i Governatori e Intendenti dell'Ospedale, dato che credevano che essa potesse esporre i pazienti ad un grave rischio" (libera traduzione dal latino di De efficaci medicina, 1646, p. 62). Evidentemente l'opera di Severino non venne apprezzata dai colleghi, che, attenti soprattutto a lenire il dolore provocato dalle lesioni, si astenevano generalmente dall'aggredire il male con azioni che potessero peggiorare una sintomatologia dolorosa. Il principio ispiratore di Severino era al contrario quello di intervenire immediatamente, allorquando a suo parere era chiaro che il processo patologico non mostrava segni di risoluzione spontanea. Severino cercò di dimostrare la validità della tesi di un rapido intervento, seppur doloroso ma risolutivo, contro un'attesa improduttiva, sia nella pratica, che con il sostegno di citazione di altri Autori tra cui Prospero Alpino (1553-1616), che nel De Medicina Aegyptiorum aveva difeso l'uso del ferro e del fuoco già praticato dagli antichi Egizi con successo. Nel 1632 Severino pubblicò la sua prima opera chirurgica il De recondita abscessum natura, sulla natura nascosta degli ascessi: egli era convinto che la maggior parte delle malattie esitava con la produzione di un ascesso, nel cui concetto comprendeva forme differenziate di lesioni patologiche, quali formazioni innaturali, escrescenze, tumori e rigonfiamenti indipendentemente dalla natura e causa determinante. Per quanto riguarda la terapia, Severino propose di evitare di ritardare l'apertura di un ascesso con bisturi (ferro) nel caso in cui abbia raggiunto lo stadio di maturazione, cioè se la materia che lo forma è 'cotta'. Tuttavia, se la materia permane allo stato 'crudo', o se evolve lentamente, Severino non ha dubbi sul metodo di recidere l'ascesso per mezzo di un ferro rovente (ferro e fuoco), il cui calore trasmesso fa raggiungere a maturazione rapida la materia al grado di 'cozione', mentre il ferro permette l'eliminazione chirurgia della lesione. Non bastò a Severino la pubblicazione del De recondita per far ridurre proteste e denunce: non aiutava certamente il linguaggio di scrittura in latino che se permetteva una divulgazione delle sue idee in un ceto colto e specializzato, non era la via comunicativa più idonea nei riguardi di un'utenza ospedaliera, fatta di pazienti generalmente in
