Roman & italic letter with some Greek. Near contemporary vellum, ms. title on paper label to spine; (plates minimally creased and foxed, small rust hole in one preliminary leaf, occasional spots; edges worn). First Lyons edition of this comprehensive study of anatomy containing much original information. The 10 sections deal with the lower torso, the thorax, the head, the limbs, the muscles, membranes and fibers, the arteries, the veins, the nerves, the bones and the cartilages and ligaments. The work includes interesting observations on pica - the craving of unsuitable foods such as earth, coal and stones, on the reasons why eunuchs and castrated animals grow plump, and on reports of the survival of infants born supposedly after only five months' gestation. The plates show a variety of dissections including figures taken from drawings by Ruysch, de Graaf, Paulli and Willis.
