        Opera Omnia Anatomica & Chirurgica. Cura Hermanni Boerhaave & Bernhardi Siegfried Albini. Tomus Primus - (Secundus).

Vellum-covers restored and somewhat soiled. Endpapers renewed. A large-margined copy. 2 hal-ftitles. Titl-epages printed in red and black with engraved title-vignettes. Engraved pictorial frontispiece. (38),-572;-(6),-577-1186 pp. (complete). Engraved portrait of Vesalius and 79 engraved plates (Numb. 1-79), 38 textengravings of varying sizes and 17 wood-engravings in the text. (Some copies seem to be collated as having 81 plates, but most library-copies show 78 and some 80). Small tears to a few plates. Some quires a bit browned, some light scattered brownspots. First and only collected edition of the printed works by "the father of human anatomy". "The first volume is taken up by Vesalius' landmark work "De humani corporis fabrica, 1543", a work that marked the beginnings of the period of rationalism in medicine. It rates with Corpernicus' "De revolutuinibus" which was published the same year. Vesalius showed, that man's structure is of one and the same materials as the bodies of lower animals. In his book the human body is fully described. On the title-page there is a picture of Vesalius, dissecting and lecturing while surrounded by students and others." (Sparrow: Milestones 192). "The fabrica" is considered the greatest work ever published on human anatomy. "In itself, for what it contains, but still more for what it did, the "Humani corporis fabrica" is one of the great books of the world, with which in the literature of Medicine only the 'De motu cordis' of Harvey is to be compared. The one revolutionized anatomy, the other created modern physiology." (Osler) - Few men in medical history have dominated their subject or their epoch as did Vesalius. The history of Anatomy is divided into three periods:the pre-Vesalian, The Vesalian, and the post-Vesalian period - a tribute to the genius of this great anatomist. (Hagelin in :Medical Books from the library of The Karolinska Institute).The editor of this Opera Omnia was Boerhaave, an extremely influential teacher of medicine in 18th-century Leiden. In an effort to reconcile recent medical discoveries with those of previous centuries, he prepared new editions of a number of the classical medical texts. Among these were the works of Vesalius, on which he worked in collaboration with his younger colleague, the anatomist Bernhard Siegfried Albinus. This edition includes apart from "De fabrica" (in volume one) and the "Epitome" (in volume two), the "China-root Letter", Vesalius's response to the "Anatomical Observations" of Gabriele Fallopio, and the "Chirurgia magna" attributed to the great anatomist. The care with which Vesalius' illustrations were produced indicates that they were regarded as still having scientific value two centuries after their first publication. Since the survival of the woodblocks was unknown to Boerhaave, the present edition is illustrated with engraved plates copied from the printed woodcuts by Jan Wandelaar, who was also responsible for the illustrations of Albinus' own anatomical atlas.(Norman 28,29). - PMM: 71 (1543-edition) - Horblitt: 98 (1543-edition) - Dibner, Heralds: 122 (1543-edition)
