CARSWELL, ROBERT. 1793-1857.

Pathological Anatomy: Illustrations of the Elementary Forms of Disease. London: 1838.
Folio (368 x 269 mm). 48 hand-colored lithograph plates. Modern morocco gilt. Light browning and foxing, presentation inscription (1850) on title page, stamp of Cincinnati Hospital Library on title page.

FIRST EDITION. "Robert Carswell ... personally painted 2,000 water-colors of pathological specimens. His great pathological atlas contains splendid hand-colored lithographs which he selected from his collection of water colors and personally drew on stone" (Garrison-Morton-Norman 2291). William Osler quoted from the DNB in describing his own copy of this rare atlas: "The plates for this great work on pathological anatomy were furnished from his own drawings and put upon the stone by himself. These illustrations have, for their artistic merit and for fidelity, never been surpassed, while the matter represents the highest point which the science of morbid anatomy had reached before the introduction of the microscope" (Osler 2250). The Glasgow University Library developed an excellent description of this book and its significance in 2003 as part of their "Book of the Month" program. Their web article includes several fine colored illustrations from this very book. Goldschmid 156.
