Item Description: Basel, (Johannes Oporinus, June 1543)., 1543. Folio (428 x 282 mm). Woodcut title-page depicting a lecture hall with the dissection of a corpse, woodcut portrait of Vesalius (aged 28) with a dissected arm on *6v, woodcut initials (depicting cherubs conducting dissections or robbing graves), woodcut illustrations (some full-page), woodcut and letterpress double-sided folding plate at m3, with another sheet signed m3, woodcut and letterpress folding plate at p4, woodcut printer's device on final verso. Early 18th-c. speckled calf with contemp. marbled pastedowns and later endpapers, spine with raised bands marked by double gilt fillets, red morocco lettering-piece, edges speckled but retaining contemporary title lettered on foot of text-block. Modern slipcase. First edition of the most famous anatomical work ever published. - With the publication of "De humani corporis fabrica" (when he was only twenty-eight) Vesalius revolutionised both the science of anatomy and how it was taught. In his preface, he describes his disappointing experiences as a student in Paris and Louvain, stating his intention to reform the teaching of anatomy by giving in this book a complete description of the structure of the human body and thereby drawing attention "to the falsity of Galen’s pronouncements". Vesalius also broke with tradition by performing dissections himself instead of leaving this task to assistants: the striking and dramatic title-page illustration shows him conducting such a dissection, his hand plunged into a female cadaver (striking in itself, as only the cadavers of executed criminals could be legally dissected and female criminals were rarely executed), surrounded by a seething mass of students. - The "Fabrica" is also revolutionary for "its unprecedented blending of scientific exposition, art and typography" (Norman). Vesalius took great care with every aspect of his book: his letter to Joannes Oporinus, reproduced in the prefatory matter (*5r-v), discusses the layout of the book, the system of reference between text and image, and the delivery of the woodcut blocks. The numerous and elegant illustrations, including the title-page and the frequently disarming woodcut initials, were entrusted to Jan Stephan van Calcar (1499-1546), a student of Titian who had also worked on Vesalius's "Tabulae anatomicae sex" of 1537-38. The beauty and accuracy of these woodcuts led to frequent piracy, despite Vesalius's attempts to protect his work with various privileges (as stated at the foot of the title-page). - B2-5 and 3-4 transposed. Light dampstaining to upper corner of textblock. Title-page very slightly soiled with a few small holes (one affecting image) and laid down; a few small marginal paper repairs (that on Q5 touching image but without loss). A few small abrasions and repairs on lower cover; extremities repaired; small tear to head of spine. A tall copy. PMM 71. VD 16, V 910. Cushing VI.A.1. Eimas 281. Norman 2137. Wellcome 6560.

Item Description: Wechel, Paris, 1569. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Folio [40 x 25.5 cm]. 4) ff., 106 pp., (1) ff. with printer¿s device on verso, plus 40 copper engraved full-page plates. Bound in early, possibly contemporary, reversed calf, covers somewhat worn, extremities with careful restoration. All pages neatly ruled in red/brown ink. With early ownership inscription scored on first title page, and several other inscriptions principally on rear pastedown and verso of final blank; occasional marginal handsoiling; a few minor marginal tears neatly mended. Pages generally very clean. Attractive genuine copies of both works. [Bound with]: Estienne, Charles, & Rivière, Estienne de la. La Dissection des parties du corps humain¿ Paris, de Colines, 1546. (8) ff., 405 pp., (1 integral blank), including 64 full-page woodcuts. A handsome pairing of the two most important anatomical works of the French Renaissance, both in their first French editions. Charles Estienne¿s superbly-illustrated Dissection des Parties du Corps Humain is bound here after Jacques Grévin¿s adaptation of Vesalius¿ De Humani Corporis Fabrica, being the first appearance of Vesalius in the French language. Together, these two spectacularly illustrated works present the pinnacle of 16th century anatomical illustration, each in a different medium -- the woodcut (Estienne) and the copper engraving (Vesalius) -- providing a vivid picture of the state of anatomy in the middle of the sixteenth century. More successful and influential than Vesalius¿ original works were the translations and adaptations which followed him. Prominent among these were the works of Thomas Geminus, a Flemish refugee living in London and a former roommate of Vesalius at Padua. In 1553, Geminus published an anatomy illustrated with 40 folio, anatomical copper engravings -- among the earliest produced in England -- after Vesalius¿ own striking woodcuts in De Fabrica (1543), which were ¿as influential as [Vesalius¿s original] woodcuts in the development of anatomical illustration¿ (Mortimer, French 541). In 1564, the French publisher André Wechel brought out an adaptation of Vesalius in Paris utilizing Geminus¿ original plates accompanied by a new commentary in Latin on Vesalian anatomy by Jacques Grévin. This work, translated in 1569, constitutes the first Vesalian work in French, which is the edition offered here. In contrast with Wechel¿s ¿French Vesalius¿ are the woodcut images in Charles Estienne¿s Dissection des parties du corps humain. Far more picturesque, richer in atmospheric detail, and even erotic, they present the shapely human figure -- strangely oblivious to the dissections of its body -- suggestively in repose: in Renaissance interiors, amid architectural ruins, set against townscapes or in gardens. According to Carlino, these images were inspired by a series of erotic figures by Perino del Vaga originally published in 1527. They were designed by Estienne de la Rivière, a famous French anatomist of his time and a contemporary rival of Vesalius. Though published for the first time (with Latin text) in 1545, Rivière¿s images, accompanied by the text of the esteemed physician Charles Estienne, were in fact prepared in 1539, four years earlier than Vesalius¿ De Fabrica (1543), and thus in many ways rightfully bear claim to the birth of modern anatomical illustration: ¿Had De dissectione been published in 1539, it would have been the first work to show detailed illustrations of dissection in serial progression, the first to discuss and illustrate the total human body, the first to publish instructions on how to mount the skeleton, and the first to set the anatomical figures in a fully developed panoramic landscape¿ (Norman). Unfortunately the two collaborators became involved in a lengthy lawsuit which delayed the publication of the Dissection des parties du corps humain by six years to 1545 (for the Latin edition).

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.

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.".

Item Description: Venetiis [Venice]: Apud Franciscum Franciscium Senensem, & Joannem Criegher Germanum, 1568., 1568. Folio, 6 leaves, pp. 510, (46). With 20 full-page and about 130 smaller anatomical woodcuts in the text. Printer?s woodcut device on title. Early 18th-century mottled sheep, spine gilt. Bookplates of Piergiorgio Borio, M.D. A nice crisp copy in attractive condition. Fourth edition (the third in folio with illustrations), and the first to be posthumously published. This edition is well printed on durable paper and set up with marginal notes exactly as in the Basel 1555 edition. In 1564 Vesalius stopped in Venice on his way to the Holy Land and submitted his last book, a reply to Falloppio, to the printer Francesco Senense for publication. Vesalius died later than year on the island of Zante. Four year later and in collaboration with a Pomeranian engraver, Joannes Criegher, Senense printed the present edition, the complete text of the 1555 Fabrica but in smaller folio format and with the woodcuts slightly reduced. ?The new woodcuts for the illustrations, however, were so well executed that the engraver might almost have passed for the same person who in Venice at the behest of Vesalius had cut the original blocks for the larger work? (Cushing). It must have been an expensive undertaking, but it shows that there was still a demand for the Latin text and the illustrations that could be met by a less costly edition than the ponderous 1555 edition.

"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.

The missing woodblocks were reproduced photographically, along with all the illustrations from Vesalius’s other works.

Item Description: Venice: Valgrisi, 1569. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Small 8vo, Foliated: [28],475,[1]ff. 23 full page woodcuts in the text. 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.
