About this Item

8vo. xiii, 101 pp. Frontispiece with tissue overlay, illustrations, bibliography. Black-and-gilt-stamped green and white patterned cloth, slipcase. Burndy and Yale University Library bookplates. SIGNED AND INSCRIBED from author to Edward Clark Streeter, M.D., Yale University. LIMITED EDITION ["Not for sale"]; this number 40 of 50 copies of the "Translator's Autographed Edition." PROVENANCE: John F. Fulton wrote an obituary for Edward Clark Streeter, a "distinguished collector and medical historian. â¦The collecting instinct was in Streeter's blood and during his years of study abroad he had begun in earnest to follow this urge, it being a pursuit he never abandoned. He placed great emphasis upon 'state,' especially of his older books, and he was constantly on the alert for better copies to replace poorer examples. First came the essential reference works, then early editions of the medical classics. As was to be expected, the fifteenth- and sixteenth-century anatomists and the early French humanists were soon well represented: Vesalius, all his important precursors and subsequent plagiarists, Guy de Chauliac and his followers. Then Nicolaus Pol claimed his attention, and he began to reassemble the library of that fifteenth-century humanist, purchasing many of the volumes with their owner's characteristic inscription" (Fulton).
