Item Description: Greifswald, Röse, 1764., 1764. 4to. (6), 32 SS. Papered spine. Edges sprinkled in red. First edition. Very rare anatomical dissertation on the female breast, written by the German physician and botanist A. B. Kölpin (1739-1801). Formerly a theologian, Kölpin had to forsake a career as a preacher due to a thoracic illness, whereupon he took up medicine. From 1765 onwards he served as director of the Greifswald Botanical Gardens before moving to Stettin as professor and county physician. A Freemason, Kölpin corresponded with Carl von Linné and published a German translation of Pehr Löfling's botanical travelogue. - Kölpin discusses the overall structure of breasts, the areola, and the exterior and interior parts of the nipple, noting its faculty for "erection in sexual arousal and other states of irritation" (p. 8). He gives an account of the blood vessels, nerves and muscular tissue throughout the breasts. Also, he describes an experiment by which he drives coloured liquids through various lactiferous ducts, proving by the several colour mixtures that they all branch out from a single papilla. - Very slight browning. Wants the plates and their explanation found in some copies. OCLC 14335139. Not in Blake. Cf. Wellcome III, 407; Engelmann 307 (other editions). Bookseller Inventory # 46159

Item Description: Leiden, Janssonius van der Aa, 1720., 1720. 4to. 32 pp. With a woodcut title vignette, headpieces and initials. Papered spine. Edges sprinkled in red. First edition. - Very rare anatomical dissertation on female breasts, constituting one of the first monographs on the subject. F. W. Mencel (1697-1773) had not only studied medicine, but also mathematics and physics; he would later serve as physician in his native Magdeburg as well as draw maps and architectural elevations in Prussia before going on to teach medicine in Halle and Zerbst (cf. Jöcher/A.). - In his introduction, the author states that humans at various ages favour different foods, but only at the youngest age can they draw nutrition from the human body alone, "for which purpose the female sex has been given two peculiar organs, which rise as prominences from the chests of young women and have been referred to by anatomists under the name of 'mammae', 'breasts', providing nourishment, called 'milk', to the tenderest of beings. These organs (as such) have not been hitherto dealt with frequently," for which reason he has chosen them as the subject of his thesis. Mencel elaborates on the classical derivation of the term 'mamma' before giving a description of the mammary glands, their different appearance in males and females, and their locale on the body. The author notes that there are usually two such glands, one right, the other opposite, on the left. The reason for this, says Mencel, is both functional and aesthetic: "for one thing, it is prettier that way, and for another, if one of them is injured or cannot produce sufficient milk, the other will serve" (p. 9). He goes on to discuss the varying size, shape, colour, and tissue density of breasts, "not the same in all women, but subject to their age, temper, and region": they develop some time before the first menstrual cycle, then expand (supposedly being bigger among married women than virgins), and are at their largest among pregnant women shortly before childbirth, while they tend to sag among the elderly - and even more so among the women of India and Senegal, where they are reported to droop to the stomach. Even in Europe, however, there are areas (says Mencel) where girls are so well-endowed that their breasts resemble pillows, indeed not little hills but enormous mountains. Mencel points out how it has often been observed that women with large breasts are more libidinous and more exposed to venereal disease, a fact reflective of the adage that "every excess turns into vice" (p. 11), then adds anecdotes about unusually buxom women from Utrecht, Elsinore and other places. Proceeding into anatomy proper, Mencel discusses the veins, arteries and nerves throughout the mammary glands, the milk ducts, and the nipples. Another chapter discusses the movement of the breasts during breathing, their "rise and subsequent fall, alternatingly, as we can observe in girls every day". The reason, he adds, "is not hard to guess, for as the breasts are situated on the thorax, so inhaling causes them to expand, and exhaling to constrict themselves", noting the health risks (including lung constriction) involved in the custom of breast binding (p. 26). After a final discussion of the human milk and lactation, Mencel concludes that much could be added on the subject, in particular about the inflammation of the breast, growths, breast cancer, excessive lactation, breast defects, and similar conditions, but his dissertation purposely omits these, as so many medical men have already written about them that to include them in his thesis would be like once more reheating leftover cabbage, and similarly likely to induce nausea, for which reason he will leave it at that. - Indeed, although Mencel's work is not absolutely the first monograph on the subject, nearly all previous studies had focused on diseases, specifically breast infection or cancer. Moritz Hoffmann had in 1662 published a 32-page dissertation "De naturali ac praeter naturali mammarum constitutione" containing an a. Bookseller Inventory # 46156

Item Description: [Giambattista Bodoni for] Regia typographia, Parma, 1775. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. Folio (336 x 250 mm). [10], xxxv [1], 217 [2] pp., frontispiece portrait and 42 engraved plates by Giovanni Battista Piazzetta and others (including 21 outline key plates). Contemporary paper card boards, author's name and title in manuscript to spine (front hinge starting, boards soiled). Text untrimmed, a few leaves creased, title slightly browned (due to frontispiece) and spotted, p. 57 torn in foremargin w/o lost. Plates and text bright with only minor spotting. A beautiful, unsophisticated copy. ---- Choulant-Frank, pp. 262-64; Garrison-Morton 399.1; Wellcome V, 22; Heirs of Hippocrates 788; Norman 1888; Cushing S66, Waller 8476. - FIRST EDITION. Santorini's posthumously published Septemdecim tabulae is noteworthy as the only significant medical book from the press of the great Italian printer Giambattista Bodoni, printer to the Duke of Parma and creator of the "modern" style typeface now named for him. Like William Hunter's Anatomy of the Gravid Uterus, Santorini's work is one of the very few medical books issued by a private press. The first 17 plates in the work, the "septemdecim tabulae" of the title, were drawn by Giovanni Battista Piazzetta (1682-1754), and engraved by Florentia Marcella under Santorini's personal supervision. Santorini intended them for an enlarged edition of his Observationes anatomicae (1724), but died before completing this task. The plates were published 38 years after Santorini's death by Michael Girardi, a professor of anatomy at Parma, who added to them two plates by the anatomist Giovanni Battista Covoli, as well as two of his own. Girardi also prepared the extensive commentary, using portions of Santorini's and Covoli's posthumous writings. Santorini's plates illustrate several complex gross features of the human body, including the facial muscles, organs of smell and hearing, the pharynx, the breasts, the diaphragm, the intestines, the bladder and the genitals. Covoli's plates show various parts of the female breast, as does Girardi's first plate; his second plate shows a partially dissected six-month fetus. Santorini's name has been given to the arytenoid cartilages, the risorius muscle and the plexus pudendalis venosus. --- Erste Ausgabe von Santorinis Hauptwerk, gleichzeitig das einzige medizinische Werk, das Giambattista Bodoni fur den Herzog von Parma gedruckt hat. "Santorini gehört zu den hervorragendsten Anatomen seiner Zeit und stand wegen seiner sehr bedeutenden anatomischen Leistungen bei allen gelehrten Zeitgenossen in grossem Rufe" (Hirsch-H.). Die schönen Tafeln enstanden zum grössten Teil nach Zeichnungen von Giovanni Battista Piazzetta, der auch die Illustrationen zum berühmten Valgrisi-Tasso von 1745 geschaffen hatte, und wurden von Marcella unter der persönlichen Aufsicht des Künstlers gestochen.

Item Description: [Giambattista Bodoni for] Regia typographia, Parma, 1775. First edition. A very fine copy. "The book is one of the finest anatomies of the eighteenth century because of its excellent illustrations and comprehensive commentary." (Heirs of Hippocrates). It is also one of the rarest of the few medical books printed at the celebrated Bodoni Press in Parma, as well as one of the few medical books issued by a private press. ?Norman 1888; Garrison-Morton 399.1; Heirs of Hippocrates 788; Pincus 248. "Santorini was generally acknowledged as the outstanding anatomist of his time. Many corrections and discoveries in the detailed anatomy of the different organs of the human body go back to Santorini. Even today a facial muscle (risorius), a pair of cartilages (comicula) of the larynx, the emissary veins of the skull, and a part of the superior and inferior turbinates of the ethmoid are named after Santorini. The work belongs to the best of its time, not only as regards the dissections and illustrations, but also as to the very elaborate commentary. Of the 21 plates 17 are by Santorini, two of the last four plates belongs to the anatomist Giovanni Battista Covoli, who was drowned, in 1768, in his youth. The other two plates belongs to the editor, Michael Girardi (1731 - 1797), a professor of anatomy in Parma, who also wrote the commentary to Santoriniís plates, thus carrying out Covoliís plans. using, in part, posthumous writings of both Santorini and Covoli. All the 21 plates are done with a light crayon effect which, however, does not impair the anatomic clarity of the prints, but even brings out well the differences in the tissues. The unsigned plates were drawn by Giovanni Battista Piazetta (1682 - 1754). A woman, Florentia Marcella, engraved Santoriniís plates under his personal supervision. Girardiís two plates are signed and were drawn by IgnazioGasparetti and engraved by Giuseppe Patrini. The pictures deal with the facial muscles, the base and other parts of the brain, the organs of smell and hearing, the pharynx, the breasts, the heart, the diaphragm with the beginning of the thoracic duct, the stomach, the liver, the intestines, the pancreas, the ileocecal valve, the bladder, the muscles of the perineum, and the genitals. Covoliís plates represent the breasts, the tunics of the testicle and a six monthsí fetus." (Hagelin, Rare and Important Medical Books, pp. 112-113). Folio (325 x 235 mm), pp. [10], i-xxxv [1], 1-217 [3] and 42 beautifully engraved plates, contemporary half vellum, marbled baords, a very fine and fresh copy, entirely unrestored. Rare in such good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 3623
