Observationes anatomicae
Venice: Giovanni Battista Recurti. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. First edition, with three engraved folding plates, of Santorini's most important contribution to medical science, containing the "major discoveries for which Santorini is known eponymically" (Garrison-Morton). "This work records a number of new anatomical discoveries and corrects many errors of earlier anatomists. Santorini's skill and expertise were so outstanding that his name lives on in such anatomical structures as the accessory pancreatic ducts, risorius muscle, arytenoid cartilages, and duodenal papillae, several of which are described in this book. The text is accompanied by three folding copperplates which beautifully illustrate the musculature of the face, the pelvic musculature and genitalia of a sixteen-year-old girl with a tubal pregnacy, the external muscles of the ear, and detailed anatomy of the male genitalia and larynx" (Heirs of Hippocrates). Garrison-Morton 392; Norman 1887; Waller 8474. Venice: Giovanni Battista Recurti, 1724. Quarto, contemporary three-quarter calf over marbled boards rebacked. Some scuffing to contemporary marbled boards, very minor dampstaining to margins at rear (not affecting text); otherwise fine.
