Bookplates of George Sumner Huntington and Columbia University. Very good. First edition. "The aspect of suffering and pain is totally absent from Albinus's Historia musculorum hominis, published in 1 734, almost 50 years after Bidloo first published his anatomical atlas. Together with his work on the human bones, Albinus's atlas has been seen as one of 'the most influential atlases of the idealized sort' The 'repulsive' image of anatomical reality, which was so striking in Bidloo's atlas, is completely absent in Albinus's work. His skeletons and musclemen are clean and attractive representations of perfectly proportioned bodies. ‚ ¶ I argue that even though the skeletons and muscle manikins do not carry traditional vanitas motives, they still have a moral message, which is closely connected to Albinus's particular notion of perfection." p. 136. ‚ " Ole Peter Grell, Dr. Andrew Cunningham, Medicine and Religion in Enlightenment Europe, (2007), page 136. "The descriptions are most faithful and the plates wonderfully accurate. Haller declared this work to be 'the best ever executed in anatomy' (Pettigrew, 1840, p. 1)." The plates (as issued) are not signed, but Wandelaar is named in the prefatory section just prior to the plates. "Albinus, a native of Frankfurt, was no doubt the finest descriptive anatomist of his day, and his works were especially endowed by the artistic copper engravings by the renowned Jan Wandelaar ‚ ¶ pupil of ‚ ¶. and Boerhaave ‚ ¶. In this present work on the muscles of the human body, the happy conjunction of Albinus and Wandelaar is seen in the lengthy detailed text of the anatomist and the‚ ¶engravings of the artist." ‚ "Heirs of Hippocrates 829. Provenance: George Sumner Huntington (1861-1927) was a medical doctor and scholar of comparative anatomy. He graduated from Columbia College in 1884 and was professor of anatomy at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons for over 35 years.
