About this Item

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).
