Titre : Illustrations of the Arteries, connected ...
Éditeur : [London:] Published by Thomas Hill and Co? 1841.
Date d'édition : 1841
Large folio, 2 preliminary leaves + 15 leaves of explanation variously paginated, and 9 hand-coloured lithographed plates (including 2 double-page) and 4 outline plates. The two double-page plates slightly shaved at the fore-edge, a few spots and small marks, but a very good copy. Nineteenth century maroon half calf (rubbed), cloth sides, green morocco presentation label on upper cover. Second edition of this extraordinary suite of plates, representing in life-size the arteries of the head, neck, shoulders, and arms. The finished plates were lithographed by Scharf from drawings by, or under the direction of, the author, except for one which was both drawn and lithographed by the author. This edition incorporates the second edition of the plates of the neck, as stated in the ?Notice Respecting the Plates? on the second leaf, and has two additional plates. I can find only one copy dated 1841, recorded by OCLC; COPAC records 3 copies dated 1824?25 or 1826, and RLIN 3 copies dated 1824. The Wellcome catalogue indicates that it was originally published in parts. Not in the British Library; not noticed by Choulant. N° de réf. du libraire 1933
