Eine herrliche Anweisung und wolgegründete Fürstellung von der Anatomie dess gantzen menschlichen Cörpers. . . Denen. . . Mahlern, Kunst-Zeichnern, Bildhauern, Kupfferstechern, Silber-Arbeitern. . . Augsburg: Joseph Friderich Leopold, 1708. 3 unnumbered leaves, including title and preface, and 16 copper-engraved anatomical plates with text printed on them, the first signed Elias Baeck alias Heldenmuth, two others signed J. Fr. Leopold. Large folio (441 x 295 mm). Bound in near contemporary vellum-backed marbled wrappers (edges little frayed and torn at fore-edge, corners scuffed, soiling and spotting).

Provenance: Scheler v. Lorenz M. Rheude with his color-lithographed armorial bookplate to front pastedown (see Schutt-Lehn 38.202). ---- I. Cushing, VI A-12; NLM/Blake, p.473; Waller 9905; Osler 572; Choulant, p.184-5; Roth 309. - EXTREMELY RARE FIRST EDITION. The Augsburg printer and publisher, Andreas Maschenbaur, acquired the original woodcut blocks of Vesalius' De humani corporis fabrica, to use 19 of them in his editions of 1706 and 1723. After publication of the second edition of the Fabrica in 1555, the whereabouts of these woodcut blocks remained unknown until Maschenbauer used them in the present work. The book was intended for painters. "On the title-page we find the five skulls from the principal book, at the end five other illustrations pertaining to the skulls, beside these, three skeletons, and four muscle-manikins from the same book, also four other muscle-manikins, and the two nude figures from the Epitome." (Choulant). II. Choulant, p.257; NLM/Blake, p.83. - EXTREMELY RARE FIRST GERMAN EDITION, first published in Rome 1697 under the title 'Anatomia dei pittori. Cognizione dei muscoli del corpo umano per il disegno'. Cesio's anatomy for painters was published after his death (1686) by the Dutch painter-engraver Arnold van Westerhout who worked in Florence for Grandduke Ferdinand of Tuscany and came to Rome about 1700 where he also died. Cesio was a pupil of Pietro Berrettini da Cartona and lived mainly in Rome. His large designs are of great beauty and in their flowing manner reminiscent of Annibale Caracci after whom he engraved some pieces. The present 16 anatomic plates include 2 skeletons and 14 myologic plates, among them 5 complete muscle-manikins.- Visit our website for more information and additional images.
