EUSTACHIUS, BARTHOLOMAEUS
TABULAE ANATOMICAE clarissimi Viri Bartholomaei Eustachii .. Praefatione ac notis illustravit Joh. Maria Lancisius ..
Rome, Rochus Bernabo at the expense of Laurentii & Thomae Pagliarini 1728 Copperplates (47 full-page numbered but with pl 35 & 37 replaced in good facsimile) + nice large plate of public dissection on TP + 50 large woodcut initials with country & hunting . Folio (378x251mm) newer calf with 5 raised bands, spine compartments gilt, gilt rules, black label with gilt titling. Titlepage in red & black XXVIII +79pp +[x] index & publisher's catalogue + 47 leaves of plates ex collation but numbered in the plate 1-47 (a4 mistakenly bound after b4). Bookplate of Dr.F.A. Sondervorst on marbled endpapers. A clean wide margined copy, no tears, very unobtrusive pale foxing to a few pages, some pages rehinged at gutter, a few with marginal dusting/damp marks but not affecting printed area except in index. Pl.20 minor offsetting from facing text page. As usual without the unnumbered page meant to be cut out and used to rule the scale. Fine thick quality paper, impressions clear & dark, and the binding of plain but sympathetic quality. *A splendid anatomical atlas with few equals. The plates were probably engraved in 1552 by Eustachius in collaboration with Agostino de Musis but only the first few were published in his lifetime. They lay forgotten and lost until rediscovered by Giovanni Maria Lancisi but without any accompanying text. Lancisi wrote text and had them published at Rome in 1714. The accuracy of the design & detail of these plates greatly surpass the woodcut drawings of Vesalius as Eustachius used copperplates which allowed for greater precision. The progress of anatomy might have been accelerated had these plates appeared in the 16th century. Eustachius was considered the most scientific anatomist of his time and unlike Vesalius his plates show a composit of anatomical types based on the study of many cadavers where as Vesalius showed the anatomy of one body. Unique to Eustachius' anatomy was the marginal graduated scale which gave the key to the explanatory text. He also juxtaposed anterior and posterior views (see Garrison & Morton 391, Wellcome II 536, Heirs of Hippocrates 201).

Muller lith(ographer) credited, below is title of the view and all surrounded by a ruled line about a centimeter from the image.

Duodecimo near contemporary speckled leather on 5 raised bands with ornately gilt compartments (hinges split at head & foot of spine but covers still well attached/head & foot of spine chipped down to headbands/tips worn, but still handsome binding) [4] incl. blank before Titlepage +614pp +[22p] index +Privilege. *Printed for the education of the Dauphin and an explanation in the Preface that the Duc de Montausier who was entrusted with the job of educating the prince by his father [Louis XIV] having selected works of conduct and religion as well as maxims desired that these be reinforced by biographies of illustrious men as illustrations of the embodiment of principles desirable in a future King. Tracing the life of Theodosius, his battles and conquests in the Orient it also deals with his good government, piety and fairness. The Abbot, addressing his royal reader, in the first chapter says that he will not overlook Theodosius' faults including the penance and reconciliation demanded by the Church. Interesting glimpse into early educational techniques as well as a history of this period of 4th century history when Rome was divided between the Western and Eastern Empires.
