Treutler, Friedrich August
Observationes pathologico-anatomicae auctarium ad helminthologicam humani corporis continentes
Johann Gottfried Mueller, Leipzig, 1793. Treutler, Friedrich August (1766-1819). Observationes pathologico-anatomicae auctarium ad helminthologiam humani corporis continentes. 4to. [8], 43pp. 4 hand-colored engraved plates. Leipzig: Sumptibus Ioannis Godofredi Mueller, 1793. 225 x 186 mm. Half sheep, boards ca. 1793, a little rubbed and spotted. Outer margin of first plate trimmed affecting the plate number only, otherwise a very good, crisp copy. Inscription in a contemporary hand on the front free endpaper. First Edition, a desirable example with hand-colored plates, which are not present in all copies. Treutler obtained his licentiate in medicine from the University of Leipzig with this thesis on parasitic worms, in which he identified some hitherto undescribed species (Tenia albopunctata, Hamularia lymphatica and Hexathyridio pinguicula) and discussed the diseases they cause in their human hosts. The hand-colored illustrations include a transverse section of a human brain infected with Tenia in the choroid plexus, a detailed view of the infected section, and dissections of several of the parasites described in Treutler's thesis.
