Item Description: Basle colophon: Johannes Oporinus June, 1543. Folio, pp. [xii], 659 (recte 663), [36], with a fine woodcut title, woodcut portrait of the author, two double page-size woodcuts (within pagination and folded; one printed on both sides), and one additional folded leaf with eight woodcuts, 21 full-page woodcuts, c. 200 smaller woodcuts, numerous woodcut initials, and woodcut printer's device at the end; ruled in red throughout and the capitals rubricated in pale yellow; title mounted at the date of binding (a little loss to inner margin of the woodcut border), tears to *2 and to the leaf with the portrait repaired without loss; one opening with offsetting from an inserted leaf; occasional light spotting; 17th-century French mottled, spine richly ornamented and lettered in gilt a la grotesque, raised bands, sprinkled edges; minor restorations to corners. A VERY GOOD, CLEAN COPY IN A VERY WELL PRESERVED 17TH-CENTURY BINDING, OF THE FIRST EDITION OF ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT WORKS IN THE HISTORY OF MEDICINE. This copy is complete with the leaf of overlays, intended to be cut out and lacking in a number of copies. 'The Fabrica, a handsomely printed folio, is remarkable for its series of magnificent plates, which set new technical standards of anatomical illustration, and indeed of book illustration in general. They have generally been ascribed to an artist of Titian's school No other work of the sixteenth century equals it It was translated, reissued, copied and plagiarized over and over again and its illustrations were used or copied in other medical works until the end of the eighteenth century' (PMM). 'Published when the author was only 29 years old, the Fabrica revolutionized not only the science of anatomy but how it was taught. Throughout his encyclopaedic work on the structure and workings of the human body, Vesalius provided a fuller and more detailed description of the human body than any of his predecessors, correcting errors in the traditional anatomical teachings of Galen. Even more epochal than his criticism of Galen and other medieval authorities was Vesalius' assertion that the dissection of cadavers must be performed by the physician himself' (Garrison-Morton). The present copy is complete with the inserted single leaf m3, headed Charta parvas aliquot figuras complectens: 'This leaf has on its recto eight anatomical figures which were to be cut out and superimposed on the folded m3 double-leaf The half-sheet in question is often absent' (Cushing).

Item Description: Johannes Oporinus, Basel, 1555. "Folio (415x270 mm), [6] ff., 824 pages, [24] ff., including two pages with folding extensions, woodcut title, portrait of Vesalius, 23 full page and ca 200 woodcuts anatomical illustrations in the text, printer’s device on verso of last leaf. Binding: late XVIII century half calf (restored). Partly minor waterstaining and minimal foxing, one folding table with backed tear the other with tears and restored white margin, title somewhat finger stained and with few wormholes. Last page with printer’s device remained at bottom. In general a very good copy with wide margins, title with ownership inscription of the Frankfurt physician Peter Uffenbach (1566-1635). Second folio edition of one of the most important books in the history of medicine, the foundation of modern anatomy and physiology, the greatest work ever published on human anatomy. "The work of Andreas Vesalius constitutes one of the greatest tresaures of western civilization and culture. His masterpiece, De Humani corporis fabrica and its companion volume the Epitome, issued in Basel in 1543, established with startling suddenness the beginning of modern observational science and research . his book is not only one of the most remarkable known to science, it is one of the most noble and magnificent volumes in the history of printing. In it illustrations, text and typography blend to achieve an unsurpassed work of creative art: the embodiment of the spirit of the Renaissance directed toward the future with new meaning." (Saunders & O’Malley, The illustration from the works of Andreas Vesalius of Brussels, Cleveland 1950) "Containing Vesalius’ s final revisions of the text, this edition is also superior for its enlarged format, improved typography and printing, better paper, larger woodcut initials, and changes to the lettering of the anatomical woodcuts."(Garrison-Morton) "No other work of the sixteenth century equals it, though many share its spirit of anatomical enquiry. It was translated, reissued, copied and plagiarized over and over again and its illustrations were used or copied in other medical works until the end of the eighteenth century."(PMM).

Item Description: A Paris: chez André Wechel. 1569., 1569. Folio, pp. (viii), 106, (2), and 40 engraved anatomical plates (1 folding). Printer?s woodcut device on title, repeated on verso of last leaf (otherwise blank), woodcut headpieces and initials, ruled in red throughout. Two very neat restorations in margins of the title and faint traces of two inscriptions erased, folding Adam & Eve plate backed and with two tears neatly repaired without loss, a few small marks and slight browning of the paper. Early eighteenth century vellum over boards. Ownership inscription of Johannes Desprez, 1574, on title. FIRST EDITION IN FRENCH of Vesalius?s Epitome, illustrated with the first anatomical copperplates. The translation was made by Jacques Grevin who was both a distinguished physician and an accomplished poet, adding a chapter of his own, Brefe Declaration des Parties du Corps Humain. In 1559?1560 he was forced to leave France for England for religious reasons where he was befriended by Queen Elizabeth. Here he probably met Thomas Geminus, who had published a plagiarised edition of Vesalius illustrated with his own copper engravings, the first time that the medium had been used in an anatomical book. It was probably Grevin who enabled the Parisian printer Christian Wechel to acquire Geminus?s copperplates, as Wechel published an edition of Geminus?s Compendiosa in 1564, illustrated with Geminus?s original engravings. Five years later Grevin published the present translation of the Vesalian text, illustrated with the same engravings. Vesalius complained about Geminus?s plagiarism and regarded his engravings as inept, but ?in fact Gemini?s copies, though omitting the background to Vesalius?s figures, are very competent technically. Perhaps the best tribute to this competence is the speed with which his copperplates were in turn themselves plagiarized by continental publishers? (ODNB). Not only were these plates made from the best anatomical illustrations that had ever been published, but Grevin gave prominence to the new technique in the title to this book; it was published not merely with illustrations, but because of them. See G&M 376 (first edition of the Epitome of 1543). Cushing, Bio-bibliography, VI.C.?7 (omitting the last leaf from his collation). Cockx-Idestege, Andreas Vesalius, a Belgian census, 56; Durling 2175; Cushing V94; Waller 9915 (all lacking the last leaf). Not in the Wellcome. A fine copy of this beautiful edition, and particularly rare when complete with the final leaf. Bookseller Inventory # 2656

Item Description: Leiden, Joannes du Vivie and Joannes & Hermann Verbeek,1725, 1725. 2 vols, folio (401 x 256 mm), pp. [xlii] 572; [viii] 577-684[2] 685-1156 [51], titles in red and black and with engraved vignettes, engraved frontispiece to volume one, engraved portrait of the author, 82 engraved plates, some folding, and 38 engravings in text; one bifolium with some spotting, a few plates just touched by binder's knife, otherwise an exceptionally clean, fresh copy in contemporary Dutch vellum, gilt panels on spine, gilt arms of the City of Amsterdam on sides, green silk ties. £25,000An exceptionally beautiful copy, the finest I have seen, with an important provenance (see below), of the first and only collected edition of Vesalius's Works, 'issued by Boerhaave and Albinus, with copperplate reproductions of the Vesalian woodblocks by Jan Wandelaar, the illustrator of Albinus's anatomical atlases. It was necessary to prepare reproductions of the Vesalian woodcuts, as Boerhaave was unaware that the original blocks still existed. The editors added explanations of Vesalius's sixteenth-century anatomical nomenclature for their eighteenth-century readers, and prefaced the first volume with a biography of Vesalius, which Lindeboom has tentatively attributed to Boerhaave.'The first volume contains a reprint of the 1555 edition of the Fabrica; the second volume contains the Epitome, the Chinaroot epistle, the spurious Chirurgia magna, Falloppio's letter to Manna, Vesalius's Examen of Fallopio, and Cuneus's Examen (curiously, the editors did not print the venesection letter). A few preliminary copies of Vol. I were issued with a title-page dated 1724 in an effort to gain subscribers to the complete work; however, these copies consisted of only the first 358 pages of the volume' (Norman catalogue).Plate 43, 'Charta parvas' with accompanying letterpress descriptions of the engraved anatomical details is on a separate leaf after page 358.This work is often browned or heavily foxed; the present copy is remarkably fresh. It in an outstanding binding with very elaborate City of Amsterdam arms in gilt, elaborately gilt spines, and its green silk ties intact.Provenance: graduation prize presentation letterpress leaf bound at beginning, dated 1834, with engraved arms of the City of Amsterdam, and manuscript inscription dated 26 September to 'Jano Guilielmo van der Voort', i.e. Jan Willem van der Voort, anatomist, whose disseration, Dissertatio anatomico-pathologica inauguralis de encephalomalacia seu emollitione cerebri, was published in Amsterdam in 1842; 19th-century Jesuit library stamp 'Dom.

Item Description: Hard cover. Par Jaques Grevin Forty engraved anatomical plates (one folding). Title & text ruled in red throughout. 4 p.l., 106 pp., one leaf with printer’s woodcut device on verso (otherwise blank). Folio, early 18th-cent. vellum over boards (two very neat restorations in margins of the title & faint traces of two inscriptions erased, folding "Adam & Eve" plate backed & with two tears neatly repaired without loss, a few small marks and slight browning of the paper), leather lettering piece on spine. Paris: A. Wechel, 1569. First edition in French of Vesalius’s Fabrica, illustrated with the first anatomical copper engravings. This is a fine copy of this beautiful edition and is particularly rare when complete with the final leaf (lacking in the NLM, Cushing, and Waller copies). The translation was made by Jacques Grevin (?1538-70), a poet and one of the most distinguished medical humanists of France. He has added a chapter of his own, "Brefe Declaration des Parties du Corps Humain." In 1560, because of religious reasons, he was forced to leave France for England where he was befriended by Queen Elizabeth. Here he probably met Thomas Geminus, who had published a plagiarized edition of Vesalius in 1545 illustrated with his own copper engravings, the first time that the medium had been used in an anatomical book (this is a famously rare book). It was probably Grevin who enabled the Parisian printer Christian Wechel to acquire Geminus’s copperplates, as Wechel published an edition of Geminus’s Compendiosa in 1564, using Geminus’s original engravings. Five years later Grevin published the present translation of the Vesalian text, illustrated with the same engravings. Vesalius complained about Geminus’s plagiarism and regarded his engravings as inept, but "in fact Gemini’s copies, though omitting the background to Vesalius’s figures, are very competent technically. Perhaps the best tribute to this competence is the speed with which his copperplates were in turn themselves plagiarized by continental publishers."-ODNB. Not only were these plates made from the best anatomical illustrations that had ever been published, but Grevin gave prominence to the new technique in the title to this book; it was published not merely with illustrations, but because of them. A really nice copy. ? Cushing VI.C.–7–(omitting the last leaf from his collation). Roberts & Tomlinson, The Fabric of the Body. European Traditions of Anatomical Illustration, p. 140–Geminus’s engravings are "remarkably fine copies of those of Vesalius. The background landscapes have been simplified into a few rocks and tufts of grass, and a few figures have been reversed; but these anatomical figures have been engraved with accuracy and clarity, the lettering particularly standing out well in this finer medium.".

With twenty full-page engraved woodcut illustrations which are reduced from those of the blocks cut for the first edition (Basel 1543). "The copying was done from the Oporin edition of 1555 and includes eight additions made in 1555. The Basel woodcuts are attributed to Jan Stephan van Calcar, a pupil of Titian. Franceschi states in his dedication to Antonio Montecatini that Giovanni Chrieger cut these Venice copies" (Mortimer). And with numerous other woodcuts in the text. Full contemporary vellum, rebacked. Two corners renewed. Vellum is a bit soiled and rubbed. Some minor worming to pastedowns. Previous owner's book plate (Norwich) on front pastedown. Early signatures on title-page of Horation de Noccis of Castello Horca, and Dr. Bartolomeo Marzo. Early ink signature of Dr. John H. Brinton (gift inscription from Brinton Coxe dated July 9/1891), and stamp of John Brinton on title-page. Ward Brinton (dated 1908) on front free endpaper. Stamp of Oswald Weigel on front pastedown. Overall a very good copy. Chemised and housed ina quarter calf slipcase. "Fine American medical provenance: John Hill Brinton (1832-1907) was a prominent American surgeon from Philadelphia and friend of painter Thomas Eakins. He succeeded Dr. Samuel D. Gross (who was featured in Thomas Eakins' The Gross Clinic), in the chair of surgery at Jefferson College, and also served as the chairman of the Mütter Museum Committee of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia. He also founded the Philadelphia Pathological Society, and served as the first curator of the National Museum of Health and Medicine in Washington, D.C." (Christie's NY 12/7/12) "Throughout this encyclopedic work on the structure and workings of the human body, Vesalius provided a fuller and more detailed description of human anatomy than any of his predecessors, correcting errors in the traditional anatomical teachings of Galen (which had been obtained from primate rather than human dissections), and arguing that knowledge of human anatomy was to be obtained only from human sources. Even more revolutionary than his criticism of Galen and other medieval authorities was Vesalius’s assertion that the dissection of cadavers must be performed by the physician himself.This ‘hands-on’ principle remained Vesalius’s most lasting contribution to the teaching of anatomy" (Norman Library). "Galen was not merely improved upon: he was superseded; and the history of anatomy is divided into two periods, pre-Vesalian and post-Vesalian" (Printing and the Mind of Man). Adams V606.

Item Description: [Venice: G.A. & J. de Franceschi, 1604]., 1604. 2 works in 1 volume (the first in two parts), folio. I: 4 leaves, pp. 510, (46), 10 leaves, including the finely engraved title-page and 223 woodcuts in the text. Title a little spotted in blank margins, occasional very faint dampstaining, but a nice, large copy with many edges uncut. II: 4 leaves, 288 pages and 9 engraved plates. Large woodcut printer?s device on title (occasional light browning). Two important medical works, both nice copies, bound together in modern vellum, ties. I. This is the fifth edition of Vesalius?s Fabrica. It is the fourth edition to be illustrated and the second to use this set of woodcuts. It is a line-for-line reprint of the 1568 edition, with the addition of a handsomely engraved title-page and a new series of anatomical tables compiled by Fabio Paulo from Rufus and Soranus. These additional tables have a separate title-page giving the date of publication which is absent from the title-page of the first part. The 1604 edition was published by the sons of the publisher of the 1568 edition. Cushing suggests, and was clearly right, based by evidence supplied by this sammelband, that this edition of Vesalius was probably issued to fill the demand for copies created when Fabricius of Aquapendente became professor of anatomy at Padua and made the text required reading. Cushing VI.A.-5.II. Fabricius?s textbook of surgery was first published in 1617 and described techniques entirely new for that age. It was reprinted many times, even into the 18th century. Fabricius (ca. 1533?1619), was a great professor at Padua, a pupil of Falloppio and teacher of Harvey. This edition is very rare with no copy listed in OCLC. A ?seconda impressione? was issued a year later. Bookseller Inventory # 2726

This copy has the titlepage, 3 prefatory leaves and last 11 leaves in facsimile. Early panelled calf with new matching leather spine and gold embossed lettering. Borgarucci was appointed professor at the University of Padua in 1564, the year of Vesalius' death. He was in Paris in 1567 and claimed to have discovered the manuscript of CHIRURGIA MAGNA there, and it is now considered probable that these were student notes based on lectures by Vesalius. This book is extremely rare, a complete copy sold in 1998 for $13,000. This copy does have all of the illustrations.
