Parentis Caspari Bartholini, Ad Circulationem Harvejanam, Et Vasa Lymphatica Quintum Renovata : Cum Iconibus novis, & Indicibus.An important early, very well illustrated edition of this standard anatomy by the Danish physician Thomas Bartholinus (1616-1680), who revised his father's work.

It concludes with two letters from Johann Walaeus to the author on the subject of the circulation of blood and chyle within the body. The work is dedicated to King Christian V of Denmark.Four of the images from the "De ossibus" section in Bartholin's "Anatome" were adapted for use in the "Kaitai shinsho" (1774), the first Japanese anatomical treatise based directly on Western materials. The images are Tabula II, showing two views of the skull Tabula VI, showing the upper and lower portions of the skull's interior figures I - III of Tabula VII, illustrating types of vertebrae and the folding plate of the skeleton opposite p. 748.In Wales important letter to Bartholinus on the circulation of the blood, he gives a very early convincing proof of HARVAYs discovery according to the laws of hydrodynamic with a plate which shows a simple experiment on a dog to confirm Harvey?s doctrine.Thomas Bartholin of Copenhagen was at once the most prolific and the most widely read of the anatomists of the seventeenth century.Waller No. 713
