Tabulae Anatomicae, 1722 (Folio Size, 47 Plates)
Amsterdam: R. & G. Wetstenios, 1722. Second edition. Folio. 375 x 235 cm. Contemporary brown boards, calf spine with six raised bands, label with title. Engraved title-page showing illustration of a dissection and exquisite 47 full-page engraved plates all fine, with superior registration and dark impressions. On an attached string is the original ruler usually not found. Eustachio's finely executed drawings for the Tabulae depicting the thorax, nervous system, various organs and vascular structures were equal to any drawn in the period. The Dutch 1722 is of great rarity and few complete copies have survived in contemporary bindings. Tomlinson remarks, "Eustachio's plates are remarkable not only for the advanced anatomical knowledge shown, but also for the original method of identification of structures drawn on the plates, and for their artistic qualities." A complete, tall copy, contents clean and bright with the only flaw being a crude mending of tears to the lower corner of the title page. There is a loss of some of the paper, but not affecting any lettering or the engraving. Binding worn with top one inch of spine worn away, corners chipped, edges worn. Still a well-preserved and attractive binding; moreso, a nearly fine example of all of the engravings.
