Beautiful copy. ¶ This work marks the beginning of scientific teratology. First edition, illustrated with altogether 36 (21 folding) engraved plates, complete. Haller himself esteemed this work as among his best productions. In fine contemporary full calf bindings. 'The numerous plates contain his highly exact, clear, and striking representations of anatomical preparations' (Eimas). 'With the many scientific corrections which Haller was able to present to anatomists, owing to his exact investigations and to his studies under Albinus, he was bound to make pictorial representations of anatomic preparations the main object of his care. His illustrations are therefore very numerous. They are very clear, vivid, highly exact, and artistic. The greater part of them had been scattered through his many writings and these were later collected by Haller himself under the title 'Opera minora...'. Haller himself esteemed this work and his 'Icones' ... as among his best productions' (Choulant). Garrison-Morton 534.54 (citing part 3): 'Reprints and updates Haller's earlier essays on various malformations. Placing it on a foundation of sound anatomical description'.
