Rare Presentation Copy of the First Edition

Bernard, Claude (1813-73) & Huette, Charles. Precis iconographique de medecine operatoire et d'anatomie chirurgicale. 8vo. [4] xxvi [2], 488pp. Engraved frontispiece of Vesalius with printed tissue guard, issued only to subscribers, 113 engraved plates printed in sepia, most hand-colored. The plates are in two series, the first numbered 1-25, and the second 1-80; the second series includes eight additional plates numbered 44bis, 51bis, 51ter, 54bis, 54ter, 62bis, 62ter and 63bis. Paris: Mequignon-Marvis, 1846. 188 x 117 mm. Quarter calf, gilt spine, rebacked in facsimile of original binding; boxed. Lightly foxed throughout, but very good. Presentation copy, inscribed by the authors on the half-title: "A mon ami / A. Molinard /Cl. Bernard Ch. Huette." Boxed.

First Edition, and rare in commerce. Bernard and Huette's influential surgical textbook was one of the first of its kind to enjoy a world-wide market, and was still being reprinted at the end of the 19th century. Presentation copies of the first edition are extraordinarily rare; this is the only one that we have ever seen in 40 years of trading. Blocker, p. 34.
