Anatomia uteri humani gravidi tabulis illustrata, .: HUNTER, William.

About this Item: Choulant, pp. 296-297; ESTC T137584; Gaskell 56; Heirs of Hippocrates 942; Roberts & Tomlinson, pp. 460-465. Magnificent first edition of a bilingual (Latin and English) anatomical atlas on obstetrics and gynaecology, illustrated with 34 mostly life-sized and accurately detailed anatomical plates of pregnant women and their unborn children. William Hunter (1718-1783), royal physician and professor of anatomy at the Society of Naval Surgeons, wrote the preface and the notes to the plates, had the illustrations drawn under his supervision and worked closely with the engravers, who produced the plates at his expense. The work began when a young woman died suddenly at full term in 1751 and Hunter was able to procure her body before any deterioration. In the preface Hunter gives remarkable details about his techniques, such as "the injection of the blood-vessels" to preserve the body for the artists, and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of different kinds of anatomical illustration, which he mixes here. "One of the great publications of world medical literature as well as a classic of book production" (Heirs of Hippocrates) and "one of the great artistic achievements in medicine" (Haskell Norman).With the ca. 1800 ink stamp of "The Liverpool Library". Without the dedication leaf, fore-edge of plate VIII slightly shaved, a small restoration removing its engraver's name, a few other small marginal restorations, a crease in 1 plate and a few text leaves, and a faint marginal water stain in the last few leaves, but still generally in good condition. The marbled-paper sides are slightly rubbed but the binding is otherwise very good. A spectacular showpiece for any collection in the field of anatomical illustration, women's studies, obstetrics, gynaecology or book production. Seller Inventory # 98UDDUCFFZDL
