Title-pages in red and black with an engraved vignette, numerous engraved illustrations in the text, woodcut ornaments and devices. Contemporary Dutch vellum, spines lettered in manuscript; binding a little shaken with stitching a little loose, lightly dust-soiled, small split at the foot of one joint; some text leaves browned in the second volume, but a very clean and fresh copy. Neat Van der Hoeven inscription and bookplate in volume 1. FIRST COLLECTED EDITION of Vesalius?s works. As with other collected works edited by Boerhaave and Albinus, this is a beautiful production, with copperplate reproductions of the Vesalian woodblocks by Jan Wandelaar, the illustrator of Albinus?s anatomical atlases (Boerhaave was unaware that the original blocks still existed). The editors added explanations to Vesalius?s sixteenth-century anatomical nomenclature for their eighteenth century readers, and prefaced the first volume with a biography of Vesalius. The first volume contains a reprint of the 1555 edition of the Fabrica; the second volume contains the Epitome, the China-root epistle, the spurious Chirurgia magna, Falloppio?s letter to Manna, Vesalius?s Examen of Falloppio, and Cuneus?s Examen. Curiously, the editors did not include the venesection letter. Cushing VI.D.-8: ?This elaborate edition of Vesalius was put out without regard for expense. The typography is excellent and the plates skilfully engraved.? Lindeboom, Bibliotheca Boerhaaviana, 554. Norman catalogue 2143. This was the only collected edition. N° de réf. du libraire 2781
