Tafeln zur vergleichenden Anatomie des Schaedels. Mit erläuterndem Texte
München, Gebrüder Minsinger, 1841. Large folio (60.0 x 46.0 cm). Title page, dedication leaf, [ii], 14 pp., six text engravings, twenty engraved plates (double suite, all plates in detail, and in line drawings with reference numbers). Printed wrappers. Contained in later blue cloth clamshell box with printed paper label mounted on the front board.* An enormous atlas with fine drawings of skulls, including those of Man, chimpanzee, other mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and fish, each image represented twice, one image being pictorial and in great detail, with a corresponding one in line, with each bone and tooth numbered separately, and named and described in the text. The numbering of the bones and teeth is homologous, e.g. all jawbones bear the number XII. Michael Pius Erdl (1815-1848) was a German anatomist and zoologist with a keen interest in ontogeny and phylogeny. This is literally his "magnum opus". Erdl also wrote a paper on the embryological development of Man and chicken, and, while travelling in the Middle East he was the first to notice that the surface of the Dead Sea is way below sea-level. Wrapper edges frayed, and a bit chipped, old stamp on the title page, some scattered light spotting, one plate a bit age-toned, otherwise a very good copy. Very rare, only one auction record in the last 40 years. Nissen ZBI, 1303; not in Wood.
