About this Item: A. Strauss, Vienna, 1824. Bremser, Joannes Gottfried (1767-1827). Icones helminthum systema Rudolphii entozoologicum illustrantes. [4], 12pp. 18 hand-colored engraved plates by Heinrich Mansfeld after Bremser's drawings. Vienna: Anton Strauss, 1824. 387 x 281 mm. Later half cloth, marbled boards, slight wear at corners. Very good copy. First Edition of one of the earliest works on helminthology, the study of parasitic worms. These beautifully executed plates were prepared by the curator of Vienna's Natural History Cabinet and illustrate the specimens in the Cabinet's collection, along with some rare examples from other collections. The plates were intended to illustrate the classification system set forth in the Synopsis entozoorum (1819) of Karl Asmund Rudolphi (1771-1832), who founded the science of helminthology at the turn of the 19th century. The plates include images of nematodes, acanthocephalans, trematoda (flukes), cestoidea (tapeworms) and cystica (taenia). Seller Inventory # 42829
