A propos de cet article

Folio, 60 pages and 10 finely engraved plates by George Cameron, Thomas Donaldson and J. Beugo from drawings by Donaldson and Andrew Fyfe (6 folded; plates 1?3 and 5 are printed on two sheets). Old library stamp at head of title and light dust-soiling in margins, some other minor dust-soiling, three tears in blank areas of plate 3 (one professionally repaired). Early 19th century half calf, sides rubbed, edges and tips of corners worn, red morocco title label on spine and matching library label at foot. FIRST EDITION. G&M 399.2: ?The first serious study of this subject and the most original anatomical work by the greatest of the Monro dynasty.? This classic work contains the first full anatomical description of the sacs between the tendons and bones which Albinus had named the bursae mucosae. They are illustrated on ten plates ?which for explicit clarity and accuracy have not been improved upon? (Heirs of Hippocrates 1011). The plates depict the foot, various joints including the knee and hip, and four of the plates are life-sized representations of the entire arm and leg. Russell, British anatomy, 613.
