About this Item: Basel, (Johannes Oporinus, June 1543)., 1543. Folio (319 x 456 mm). 355 leaves and two folding sheets. Roman and italic types, occasional use of Greek and Hebrew types, printed shoulder notes. Woodcut pictorial title, author portrait, and printer’s device; 7 large, 186 mid-sized, and 22 small woodcut initials; more than 200 woodcut illustrations, including 3 full-page skeletons, 14 full-page muscle men, 5 large diagrams of veins and nerves, 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. All woodcuts and initials up to page 165 in full contemporary hand colour. Contemporary blindstamped leather over wooden boards with bevelled edges, on five raised double bands, with two clasps. A truly outstanding copy of one of the greatest and most appealing books in the history of science. Preserved in its original binding with the blindstamped initials of its first owner, the German physician Caspar Neefe (1514-79), and with his handwritten annotations throughout, the present copy is partly coloured by a contemporary artist (including the iconic woodcut used as title page and all anatomical illustrations up to page 165). Caspar Neefe, who later served as personal physician to Duke Albert I of Saxony, acquired the precious volume only a year after its publication and obviously consulted it extensively throughout his career as a medical practitioner. - With the publication of "De humani corporis fabrica" (when he was only twenty-eight) Vesalius revolutionized 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, 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 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 dissected legally 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). The woodcuts by artists of the school of Titian are both iconographically and artistically important. The series of fourteen muscle men show landscapes that, when assembled in reverse order, form a panorama of the Euganean Hills near Padua, a scenery well known to Vesalius while he was at work on the Fabrica. - Of the few copies of the first edition to have come to the market in recent decades, only two were in a contemporary binding. Apart from Vesalius's dedication copy to Emperor Charles V (Christie's New York, 18 March 1998, lot 213: $1,652,500), only a single other partly coloured copy was previously known, a list to which ours must now be added as the third known copy in contemporary colour. - Acquired in 2017; previously in a Tyrolean private medical collection, where the book rested for three generations (erased circular library stamp in the blank lower margin of the title page): an outstanding copy hitherto unknown to scholarship (cf. the recent census published by Dániel Margócsy, University of Cambridge, below; further relevant correpondence with Dr Margócsy is available upon request). Occasional waterstaining to margins, the splendid binding a little rubbed and bumped, but altogether a wonderfully crisp, wide-margined copy of the first edition. Unquestionably the most desirable copy of a milestone in the history of science still in private hands, and likely the most important medical book obtainable for decades to come. PMM 71.

About this Item: 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.".

About this Item: A Paris: chez André Wechel. 1569., 1569. Folio, pp. (viii), 106, (2), and 40 engraved anatomical plates (1 folding).

Early eighteenth century vellum over boards. Ownership inscription of Johannes Desprez, 1574, on title. FIRST EDITION IN FRENCH of Vesalius?s Epitome, illustrated with the first anatomical copperplates. The translation was made by Jacques Grevin who was both a distinguished physician and an accomplished poet, adding a chapter of his own, Brefe Declaration des Parties du Corps Humain. In 1559?1560 he was forced to leave France for England for religious reasons where he was befriended by Queen Elizabeth. Here he probably met Thomas Geminus, who had published a plagiarised edition of Vesalius illustrated with his own copper engravings, the first time that the medium had been used in an anatomical book.

Cockx-Idestege, Andreas Vesalius, a Belgian census, 56; Durling 2175; Cushing V94; Waller 9915 (all lacking the last leaf). Not in the Wellcome.

About this Item: Venetiis [Venice]: Apud Franciscum Franciscium Senensem, & Joannem Criegher Germanum, 1568., 1568. Folio, 6 leaves, pp. 510, (46). 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.

About this Item: Venice Franciscus Francisci and Johann Criegher, 1568. Fourth Edition and Third Folio Edition VESALIUS, Andreas. De humani corporis fabrica libri septem. Venice: Franciscus Francisci and Johann Criegher, 1568. Fourth edition, third folio edition. Folio (12 3/4 x 8 3/4 inches; 325 x 220 mm). [12], 510, [45, table], [3, blank]. With twenty full-page engraved woodcut illustrations which are reduced from those of the blocks cut for the first edition (Basel 1543). "The copying was done from the Oporin edition of 1555 and includes eight additions made in 1555. The Basel woodcuts are attributed to Jan Stephan van Calcar, a pupil of Titian. Franceschi states in his dedication to Antonio Montecatini that Giovanni Chrieger cut these Venice copies" (Mortimer). And with numerous other woodcuts in the text. Leaf Dd5 recto (page 321) contains figures to be cut out and superimposed on to leaf Dd3 verso (page 318). In this copy the figures remain intact and not cut out. Full contemporary vellum, rebacked. Two corners renewed. Vellum is a bit soiled and rubbed. Some minor worming to pastedowns. Previous owner's book plate (Norwich) on front pastedown. Early signatures on title-page of Horation de Noccis of Castello Horca, and Dr. Bartolomeo Marzo. Early ink signature of Dr. John H. Brinton (gift inscription from Brinton Coxe dated July 9/1891), and stamp of John Brinton on title-page. Ward Brinton (dated 1908) on front free endpaper. Stamp of Oswald Weigel on front pastedown. Overall a very good copy. Chemised and housed ina quarter calf slipcase. "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. Choulant/Frank, pp.182. Cushing, Vesalius, VI.A.-4. Osler 569. NLM/Durling 4580. Printing and the Mind of Man 71 (first edition). Waller 9902. HBS 66126. $18,500. Seller Inventory # 66126

About this Item: Francesco dei Fransechi & Johann Krieger (Giovanni Chrieger), Venice, 1568. Fourth edition (third folio). Folio (paper size: 315 x 210 mm). [12], 510, 46 pp., COMPLETE. With 20 full-page and ca. 130 smaller anatomical engravings in the text. Contemporary (East?) German pigskin over paste-paper boards, profusely blind-tooled, both covers bearing panel stamps of Judith severing the head of Holofernes (see below). Head and tail of spine strengthened with leather, modern pastedowns and endpapers; binding extremities worn (in our opinion not objectionably so). Title-page a little spotted and with a 1 x 2.5" area filled in at the extreme outer blank margin; traces of damp or staining in the margins here and there (not obtrusive). An imposing copy. This is the first edition printed in Italy. The international influence of this Italian Renaissance edition is clearly exhibited in the present copy, which was bound in Germany ca. 1577 and is a choice example of it, having been profusely blind-tooled and with two evocative panel stamps of Judith severing the head of Holofernes, both of which are here recorded for the first time (see below). As the most important anatomical book ever published, the significance of this book in the history of medicine and in the history of book illustration is so well known as to require no special stressing. For the sake of exactitude: this a lovely Venetian Renaissance edition of the complete text of 1555 Basel Fabrica, distinguished by its smaller format, and somewhat reduced -- but no less beautiful -- wood-blocks. "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 [.] This edition was a foreign book, printed without license, there being no regulation at the time (1568) to prevent this and it was a common enough practice' (Cushing, pp. 92-93). According to Mortimer (Harvard, Italian 529): "The copying was done from the Oporin edition of 1555 and includes eight additions made in 1555. The Basel woodcuts are attributed to Jan Stephan van Calcar, a pupil of Titian. Franceschi states in his dedication to Antonio Montecatini that Giovanni Chrieger cut these Venice copies" Our copy shows evidence of real use; not only are there early MS references to other pages of the text, but almost EVERY instance of Greek text has been transliterated into Roman letter. The 80 x 45 mm panel stamp on the upper cover of the binding is SIGNED with the monogram "LC / H" and dated "1577," -- this stamp, which bears the text VOLVNTATEM TIMENTIVM SE FACIET DOMIVS 1577 is not recorded in Haebler; Rath, Beitrage; the Einbanddatenbank; or any other source consulted by us. Nor is the panel stamp on the lower cover (80 x 47) in which is depicted Judith severing the head of Holofernes with a HAMMER and a CHISEL (sic!), below which appears the text: SIC PEREANT INIMICI TVI DOMINE. PROVENANCE: A curious swash initial "M" adorns the title-page and appears subsequently at the beginning of every chapter heading and at the foot of the final leaf of text; who was this individual? -- Old ownership inscription on title in Russian -- Zlatko Pozeg.

[8, including engraved title by Francisco Valegio], 510, [46], [20]pp. Woodcut text illustrations by Joannes Criegher after the original Vesalian woodcuts.

Venice: apud Joan. Anton. et Iacobum de Franciscis, [1604]. 318 x 216 mm. Modern vellum.

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).

Quibus accessit quarta ex Sorani medici antiquissimi fragmento Graeco non antehac Latino facto. Di 19 pagine non numerate + una bianca. ""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). Cushing, A Bio-bibliography of Andreas Vesalius, VI.A-5. Seller Inventory # 017484

About this Item: Andreas Maschenbaur, Augsburg, 1706. Soft cover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. VESALIUS, Andreas. Zergliederung dess Menschlichen Cörpers auf Mahlerey und Bildhauer-Kunst gericht. Die Figuren von Titian gezeichnet. Augsburg: Andreas Maschenbaur, 1706. 16 unnumbered leaves including title and 18 woodcuts in text, of which 13 are full page. [Bound with] II. CESIO, Carlo. Eine herrliche Anweisung und wolgegründete Fürstellung von der Anatomie dess gantzen menschlichen Cörpers. . . Denen. . . Mahlern, Kunst-Zeichnern, Bildhauern, Kupfferstechern, Silber-Arbeitern. . . Augsburg: Joseph Friderich Leopold, 1708. 3 unnumbered leaves, including title and preface, and 16 copper-engraved anatomical plates with text printed on them, the first signed Elias Baeck alias Heldenmuth, two others signed J. Fr. Leopold. Large folio (441 x 295 mm). Bound in near contemporary vellum-backed marbled wrappers (edges little frayed and torn at fore-edge, corners scuffed, soiling and spotting). Internally only very little browned, marginal dust-soiling, oversized woodcuts on leaves D1r and F1v in first work shaved just a few mm at foot, last leaf G1 of first work laid down on marbled paper, lower margin of final 14 leaves of second work little waterstained, otherwise quite clean and fresh. Provenance: Scheler v. Lorenz M. Rheude with his color-lithographed armorial bookplate to front pastedown (see Schutt-Lehn 38.202). ---- I. Cushing, VI A-12; NLM/Blake, p.473; Waller 9905; Osler 572; Choulant, p.184-5; Roth 309. - EXTREMELY RARE FIRST EDITION. The Augsburg printer and publisher, Andreas Maschenbaur, acquired the original woodcut blocks of Vesalius' De humani corporis fabrica, to use 19 of them in his editions of 1706 and 1723. After publication of the second edition of the Fabrica in 1555, the whereabouts of these woodcut blocks remained unknown until Maschenbauer used them in the present work. The book was intended for painters. "On the title-page we find the five skulls from the principal book, at the end five other illustrations pertaining to the skulls, beside these, three skeletons, and four muscle-manikins from the same book, also four other muscle-manikins, and the two nude figures from the Epitome." (Choulant). II. Choulant, p.257; NLM/Blake, p.83. - EXTREMELY RARE FIRST GERMAN EDITION, first published in Rome 1697 under the title 'Anatomia dei pittori. Cognizione dei muscoli del corpo umano per il disegno'. Cesio's anatomy for painters was published after his death (1686) by the Dutch painter-engraver Arnold van Westerhout who worked in Florence for Grandduke Ferdinand of Tuscany and came to Rome about 1700 where he also died. Cesio was a pupil of Pietro Berrettini da Cartona and lived mainly in Rome. His large designs are of great beauty and in their flowing manner reminiscent of Annibale Caracci after whom he engraved some pieces. The present 16 anatomic plates include 2 skeletons and 14 myologic plates, among them 5 complete muscle-manikins.- Visit our website for more information and additional images.

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. ". Originele perkamanten band, enigzins bevuild en gebruind, enkele vlekken, en de gebruikelijke verouderingssporen, zoals men van een "anatomie" met deze leeftijd mag verwachten.

Bound at the end, is the separately printed ' Bedieninghe Der Anatomien ' issued by the same publisher in 1646, by David van Mauden, and intended to supplement or update the edition of 1568. 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. Seller Inventory # 130318
