London: Printed for D. Midwinter, and Tho. Leigh, at the Rose and Crown in St. Paul’s Church-yard, 1701.

Full Leather. First English Edition. First English Edition of Daniel Tauvry’s New Rational Anatomy, translated from the third French edition. Tauvry was a Member of the College of Physicians at Paris, until his death in 1701. Complete with frontispiece and 21 additional numbered plates. [8], 144, 161-301, [9] pp. Leaves K7 and K8 appear to be stubbed in cancels, with rather incorrect pagination. Despite the jump in pagination between pp. 144 and 161 (K8v and L1r), the beginning of Part 2, the text appears complete. Dampstaining and rippling to the text. Plate 18 has a 7 cm closed tear extending from the bottom edge. Japanese tissue repair to the joints, near the head of the spine. Hinges cracked but holding well. Beginning of separation at the bottom of the joints. Front board bowed at the edges. Full calf, overly mottled in the center panels of the boards, with blindstamped decorations reminiscent of a Cambridge binding. Titling in ink on the spine, now faded. (ESTC T153620).

Good binding.
