ESTIENNE, CHARLES. 1504-1564.

De dissectione partium corporis humani. Paris: Simone Colin, 1545.
Folio (364 x 250 mm). Later quarter vellum and marbled boards, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Soiling, chipping and wear to covers, corners bumped, scattered browning and spotting.

FIRST EDITION. "First published work to include illustrations of the whole external venous and nervous systems. A French translation appeared from the same press in 1546. The physician author was the son of Henri Estienne, the founder of the Estienne dynasty of scholar-printers, and the son-in-law of the printer of this book, Simon de Colines. The magnificent woodcuts in this work were by Jean ("Mercure") Jollat and the surgeon/artist and collaborator on the work, Estienne de la Riviere, possibly after designs by the Florentine artist/architect Giovanni Battista Rosso. The cuts were begun as early as 1530 by Jollat, and Estienne and Riviere collaborated on the book as early as 1539. However publication of this manual of dissection was delayed because of a lawsuit brought against Estienne by Riviere. Had the book appeared prior to 1543 as planned, it would have eclipsed some of the innovation of Vesalius's Fabrica" (Krivatsy 1391). DSB 4:412-413; Garrison-Morton-Norman 378.
