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.

Folio (411 x 275 mm), pp [xii] 659 [recte 663] [37] with both bifolia leaves m3 and p4 and cancel leaf m3 present, with fine woodcut title, portrait of Vesalius, 21 full-page and 2 double-page woodcuts of the skeletal, muscular, vascular, and nervous systems, ca 200 other woodcuts in text, 6 large, 22 median, and 180 smaller historiated woodcut initials depicting medical scenes, printer's device on last leaf; title laid down at time of binding, with slight loss to inner woodcut border, marginal tear to blank area of portrait leaf repaired, not affecting image, text ruled in red throughout, with capitals rubricated in pale yellow, some occasional light spotting but overall a very large, clean, fresh copy, in seventeenth-century French mottled calf, spine richly gilt à la grotesque, a few minor repairs to binding. £250,000First edition, a very fine and fresh copy, of the most important and most beautiful anatomical work ever published. This work effected a revolution in the history of medicine, dividing it into two epochs, pre- and post-Vesalian. Its impact on the life sciences is comparable to that of Copernicus' De revolutionibus (published the same year) on astronomy. There is no point in elaborating on this work's importance or beauty.This copy has the two folding leaves, and the inserted single leaf m3, headed 'Charta parvas aliquot figuras complectens', containing 'on its recto eight anatomical figures which were intended to be cut out and superimposed on the folded m3 double-leaf . The half-sheet in question is often absent' (Cushing).In their 1984 census, Horowitz and Collins located 132 copies, of which 31 are imperfect. The recent 'Updated Census in USA of first edition of Andreas Vesalius' "De Humani Corporis Fabrica"' by Stephen Joffe and Veronica Buchanan (International Archives of Medicine, v 8 n 23 2015), has added 18 further copies in the U.S., and updates some records of previous holdings.Provenance: Eighteenth-century inscription 'ex libris J Frizac' on front pastedown; this is probably the Toulouse surgeon Jean-Jacques Frizac, author of These de chirurgie sur les blessures de la tête (Toulouse, 1769); ownership stamp on title of François-Vincent Raspail (1794-1878), chemist, physiologist, and one of the founders of cell theory; 'Vente Raspail Dec. 1912' in pencil on front free endleaf; bookplate of 'Docteur François Moutier' on pastedown; Moutier (1881-1961) was a neurologist and later gastro-enterologist; he first introduced the endoscope to France. His thesis, L'aphasie de Broca (Paris 1907), comprised 779 pages; long bibliographical note dated 29/12/1912 by Moutier about the copy, and the auction of the Raspail library in which he bought it, etc.Cushing Vesalius VI.

Item Description: [R. Winter], Basel, 1539. First edition of Vesalius’s ‘venesection letter,’ one of his rarest works, embodying what may be the earliest approach to an area of medicine which may be called scientific in the modern sense. This is a fine copy, complete with the final leaf (the Cushing and Waller copies both lack it). The letter on venesection "was written for Nicolas Flourens, physician to Charles V, who had queried Vesalius regarding the notes on the azygos vein in Tabulae anatomicae sex [published by Vesalius in 1538]; Flourens wished to know what relation the vein had to the question of bloodletting in cases of pleurisy and pneumonia. Vesalius’ letter advocated the new ‘classical’ method of letting blood near the site of the affliction, a method arousing great controversy among the medical community as it was directly opposed to the traditional ‘revulsive’ bleeding taught by the Arabic authorities. Although the classical method was derived from a more accurate reading of Hippocrates and Galen . the importance of Vesalius’ defense of it lies in the authority he gave to his own knowledge of the structure of the venous system an important step in his movement away from traditional anatomical concepts" (Norman). "In this letter we perceive the first steps in the slow and gradual loosening of traditional bonds whence eventually emerged the principle that the validity of a hypothesis rests solely upon facts established by observation. Here Vesalius asks a first tentative question "whether the method of an anatomy could corroborate speculation"; a question not without moment in a day when principles based solely upon the power of the intellect were enshrined as truth Vesalius’s fame rests upon his anatomical contributions, but he was as fully concerned with the problem of practical medicine The venesection letter strongly suggests that it was Vesalius’s preoccupation with such clinical problems which provided the insight that enabled him to shake off the dead hand of Galen’s pronouncements and make the production of the Fabrica possible" (Saunders & O’Malley, pp. 5-6). "Out of the venesection controversy came as a purely incidental finding the discovery of the venous valves which in the consciousness of Harvey was to provide the key to unlocking the door to the circulation" (ibid., p. 20). ABPC/RBH list only the Norman copy (in a modern binding) since 1929."In 1538 Vesalius visited Matteo Corti, professor of medicine in Bologna, and discussed the problems of therapy by venesection. Differences of opinion between the two men seem to have been the impulse behind Vesalius’ next book, Epistola docens venam axillarem dextri cubiti in dolore laterali secundam (Basel, 1539), written in support of the revived classical procedure first advocated in a posthumous publication (1525) of the Parisian physician Pierre Brissot. In this procedure blood was drawn from a site near the location of the ailment, in contrast to the Muslim and medieval practice of drawing blood from a distant part of the body. As the title of his book indicates, Vesalius sought to locate the precise site for venesection in pleurisy within the framework of the classical method. The real significance of the book lay in Vesalius’ attempt to support his arguments by the location and continuity of the venous system rather than by an appeal to earlier authority. Despite his own still faulty knowledge, his method may be called scientific in relation to that of others; certainly it was nontraditional and required that his opponents resort to the same method if they wished to reply effectively. With this novel approach to the problem of venesection Vesalius posed the then striking hypothesis that anatomical dissection might be used to test speculation. Here too he declared clearly, on the basis of vivisection, that cardiac systole was synchronous with arterial expansion and for the first time mentioned his initial efforts in the preparation of the anatomical monograph that was ultimately to take shape.

Item Description: Basel: Johannes Oporinus, June 1543., 1543. VESALIUS, Andreas (1514-1564). De humani corporis fabrica libri septem. Basel: Johannes Oporinus, June 1543. Folio (14 4/8 x 9 4/8 inches). Collation: *6 (*5 supplied in facsimile); A-Z6 a-l6 m2 (m3 and double-page, also signed m3, in facsimile) m4-m6 (+1) n-o6 p4 (double-page, signed p4, in facsimile) q-z6 Aa-Ii6 Kk-Ll6 Mm8. 355 leaves (and two double-pages in facsimile). Roman and italic types, occasional use of Greek and Hebrew types, printed shoulder notes. Woodcut pictorial title-page showing Vesalius reaching into the abdomen on a female cadaver and looking out at the reader (trimmed to within the neat line at the top, laid down, with minor losses to the fore-edge just affecting the image, and two closed tears extending into the image about 3 inches each), full-page portrait of Vesalius, probably after Jan Stephan Calkar (died 1568)(tipped-in), and printer's device at end; more than 200 woodcut illustrations, including 3 full-page skeletons, 14 full-page muscle-men, 5 large diagrams of veins and nerves (2 double-pages, one of veins and one of nerves supplied in facsimile), 10 mid-sized views of the abdomen, 2 mid-sized views of the thorax, 13 mid-sized views of the skull and brain, and numerous smaller views of bones, organs and anatomical parts, 7 large, 186 mid-sized, and 22 small woodcut historiated initials all after Vesalius and an unknown artist from the studio of Titian, possibly Flemish artist Jan van Calcar (one full-page with 8 images supplied in facsimile) (several marginal repairs to wormholes and other minor losses very occasionally just touching the image or text, particularly to the fore-margins of Q5 to T3, also small repairs to several corners). Modern full vellum, black morocco lettering-pieces on the spine; preserved in a cloth clamshell box. Provenance: Ink library stamps removed from the verso of the portrait and at least one margin; one or two early marginal annotations and underscoring; early 19th-century French auction catalogue entry for this example on the front paste-down showing that this example was already without the two folding plates, and *5; from the library of Alfred Duff Cooper, first Viscount Norwich (1890–1954), diplomatist and politician, with his bookplate by Leo Wyatt (died 1981) on front paste-down showing a human skeleton charting a course to Africa, using his copy of De humani corporis fabrica libri septem as a workbench. FIRST EDITION OF THE FOUNDATION OF THE ACCURATE STUDY OF HUMAN ANATOMY, a work of exacting and ground-breaking scientific method and illustration, but also a book of extraordinary and surprising beauty, giving what might have been a textbook rendering of skeletal structure, abdominal viscera and thoracic organs, the venous and nervous systems, and musculature, an artistic perspective and setting. Even the book's structure is revolutionary: each of the seven books that make up the De humani corporis fabrica libri septem explains and illustrates a single anatomical system, starting with the skeleton and then progressing logically from the inside out. Using as his starting point the studies of prominent ancient Greek physician, surgeon and philosopher Aelius Galenus (or Claudius Galenus), better known as Galen of Pergamon (AD 129 – c.?200 - 216), Vesalius, rather controversially, based his theories on a painstaking personal dissection and study of cadavers of the human body, rather than those of animals. He demonstrated his method publicly at popular lectures, like the one illustrated on the title-page, in Padua. The wood blocks for the illustrations, many of which feature scenes from the countryside surrounding Padua, were cut in Venice and transported across the Alps by mule to Basel, where the printer Oporinus received them with strict and copious instructions from Vesalius as to their placement in the apposite text. Vesalius was only 29 when he published his De humani corporis fabrica libri septem: "all major investigators of anatomy were compelled to recogni. Bookseller Inventory # 72lib1373

Contemporary 16th century limb vellum. Some marginal waterstaining, The Valverde with a small printed errata leave opposite page 16. Titlepage with repairs at the lower margin, without affecting the engraving. Some scratching on titlepage as on plate (Tabula V Libri III). Only on the reproductive systems. Otherwise in fine condition. Provenance in handwritting on the first blank: " Desen boeck behoort toe aen Guillielsmus Josephus Dentier tot Gistel den 24 meije 1763". Ad A. Very rare only 450 copies are printed ( See note Bibl. Belgica). Title within engraved border, and plates are the same as in the 1566 edition of the author's Vivae imagines. A Dutch translation of the Vivae imagines of 1566, including Vesalius' Epitome.The explanation of the figures was translated by Jean Thorius, and the rest of the text (principally the Epitome) by Martin Everaert. The work consists of the 42 Valverde plates [based on Vesalius' Fabrica] re-engraved on copper. ( Some reversed). The text accompanying the plates is translated from Valverde's Vivae imagines partium corporis humani. On p. 141-196 [i. e. 198]. There is the Epitome by Vesalius. "Het Epitome, oft cort verhael vande boecken van Andries Vesalius Bruesselaer, vande fabrijck van d'menschelick lichaem": "De differentien van alle de partien oft deelen des lichaems deur Jacob Grevin": p. [199]. Choulant p. 206. Norman No. 2128 ( Latin ed. 1566):" Valverde , a Spanish physician, studied anatomy at the University of Padua under Vesalius and Realdo Colombo and published his ' Historia de la composicion del cuerpo humano ( Rome 1556)', thirteen years after the apperance of Vesalius's Fabrica. All but fifteen of Valverde's images were taken directly from the 1543 and 1555 editions of the Fabrica, but Valverde obscured the origin of many of the images by combining them, or by adding extraneous details such as suits of armor or new heads. Valverde made over sixty corrections and additions to Vesalius's work, including descriptions of the stapes of the air, the short palmar muscle, the pregnant human uterus and the pulmonary curcuit of the blood. Perhaps his most significant contribution was his statement of the true nature of the cardiac septum, which corrected Vesalius' and Galen's mistaken notion that blood passes through the septum from the right ventricle to the left" This very scarce Dutch title has been of great influence on Japanese medicine. The frontispiece of the " Kaitai Shinsho" translated by Genpaku Sugita ( 1733 - 1817) is after the above work. The Kaitai Shinsho is the first and most complete Japanese translation of a medical book ( See Dodonaeus in Japan p. 20). It is considered as a source of modern medicine in Japan and highly valued not only from the viewpoint of medicine but also from the aspect of Japanese cultural history". (= Catalogue. Hist. Material Development of Modern Medicine in Japan. Jap. Soc. Of Medical History 1959. no 16.) See Eikoh Ma: In the Impact of Western Medicine on Japan ( Archiv. Int. d' Histoire des Sc. Juni 1966 p. 67) :" The significance of the achievement of Gempaku and others is that it was the first introduction of Vesalius anatomy into Japan by translation. Indeed, the Vesalius anatomy had reached this country earlier and a translation of a Dutch anatomical book had been also attempted many years earlier, but it was not so successful as Gempaku's translation and did not influence Japanese medicine as Gempaku did. Therefore , we might consider Gempaku's translation as the first introduction of Vesalius anatomy. pp. 69 :" there is evidence that Gempaku and others refered of an anatomical book by Valverde, for the colored titlepage of the Kaitai Shinsho bears a strikingly close resemb.

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 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.

"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: Joan. Anton. et Jacobus de Franciscus, Venice, 1604. Vesalius, Andreas (1514-64). Anatomia: Addita nunc postremo etiam antiquorum anatome. Folio. [8, including engraved title by Francisco Valegio], 510, [46], [20]pp. Woodcut text illustrations by Joannes Criegher after the original Vesalian woodcuts. The last 20 pages consist of a separately titled appendix: Universa antiquorum anatome tam ossium, quam partium & externarum, & internarum ex Rufo Ephesio medico antiquissimo: Tribus tabellis explicate per Fabium Paulinum . . . Venice: apud Joan. Anton. et Iacobum de Franciscis, [1604]. 318 x 216 mm. Modern vellum. Margins of first and last signatures repaired, title a bit soiled, half-title (Cushing’s *1) bound after engraved title (Cushing’s *2), signature Xx bound after Yy. Upper margin of title inscribed "Inclita Nationis Polona Patavii Sumptibus," faint ownership inscription dated 1677 on verso title, partly effaced inscription ("Sumptibus nationis emptus") on dedication leaf. Very good./p> Fifth edition of the Fabrica. The typography of this edition closely follows that of the fourth edition, issued in 1568 by the Venetian printer Francesco Senense, father of Giovanni Antonio and Jacopo de Franceschi. This fifth edition also reprints the reduced-size woodblocks prepared by Joannes Criegher for the fourth edition. "The sons of Francesco Senense must have come into possession of Criegher’s carefully engraved wood-blocks and when in 1604 their father’s edition of 1568 presumably became sold out, they decided to issue another in precisely the same format . . . Fabricius of Acquapendente was by now professor of anatomy at Padua, and it was in all likelihood the student text he recommended. Additions to the book were a title-page handsomely engraved on copper and an additional series of anatomical tables with a new title-page and privilege giving the date of publication which was absent on the frontispiece" (Cushing, p. 93).

Neat Van der Hoeven inscription and bookplate in volume 1. FIRST COLLECTED EDITION of Vesalius?s works. As with other collected works edited by Boerhaave and Albinus, this is a beautiful production, with copperplate reproductions of the Vesalian woodblocks by Jan Wandelaar, the illustrator of Albinus?s anatomical atlases (Boerhaave was unaware that the original blocks still existed). The editors added explanations to Vesalius?s sixteenth-century anatomical nomenclature for their eighteenth century readers, and prefaced the first volume with a biography of Vesalius. The first volume contains a reprint of the 1555 edition of the Fabrica; the second volume contains the Epitome, the China-root epistle, the spurious Chirurgia magna, Falloppio?s letter to Manna, Vesalius?s Examen of Falloppio, and Cuneus?s Examen. Curiously, the editors did not include the venesection letter. Cushing VI.D.-8: ?This elaborate edition of Vesalius was put out without regard for expense. The typography is excellent and the plates skilfully engraved.? Lindeboom, Bibliotheca Boerhaaviana, 554. Norman catalogue 2143. This was the only collected edition. Bookseller Inventory # 2781

Tweede editie, de eerste was van Plantijn in 1568. Voor zijn eerste Latijnse uitgave in 1566, gebruikte Plantijn de herwerkte gravures van de Hollandse kunstenaars Pieter en Franz Huys. Tweede deel is het afzonderlijk gedrukte "Bedieninghe der Anatomien" door David van Mauden (zelfde uitgever, 1646 ), bedoeld als "onderrichtinghe om perfectelijck des menschen lichaem t'anatomizeren.

Bound in contemporary vellum, light browning or soiling, a few stains, the signs of use normal to an anatomy of this age, but a good sound copy overall. Bookseller Inventory # 130318

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.
