Bidloo, Govard
Anatomia Humani Corporis (Atlas of Human Anatomy)
Paris: Editions Roger DaCosta, 1972. Paris: Editions Roger DaCosta. 1972. Facsimile edition of Bidloo's noted atlas of human anatomy first published in Amsterdam in 1685. Large 4to (11"x16"), bound in bu rgundy leatherette, marbled end-papers, all edges gilt. No. 411 of 2000 copies printed. A bit of rubbing at top and bottom of sp ine, otherwise fine. The atlas is illustrated with 105 plates by Gerard de Lairesse, showing the human figure both in living at titudes and as dissected cadavers. The book was later plagiarized by English surgeon William Cowper for his Anatomy of the Humane Bodies (1698), which gave no credit to either Bidloo or de Laires se. This led to a number of vitriolic exchanges between Bidloo an d Cowper, including several pamphlets published in each anatomist 's defense. William III, Dutch stadholder and king of England, asked Bidloo to become his personal physician in 1695. The king died in his arms on 8 March 1702. .
