JUMBO ATLAS! In imperial folio (20 kg. - 47x31 cm)

First Italian edition of this superb Atlas. See Premuda "History of anatomical iconography", p. 194: "Cruveilhier's" Pathological Anatomy of the Human Body "includes 229 illustrations (233). This work constitutes a milestone in the field of anatomical illustration. The reader is embarrassed because he does not know whether to admire more the acuity in observation and criticism or the admirable, effective beauty of the preparations translated into the drawing ".

"It is extremely rare to find the complete atlas of the 233 tables". In Italy the libraries that possess it declare 229, as also indicated by Premuda. The Italian edition of the text in 4 volumes was published between 1837 and 1841. Only a few flourishes. or traces of use and loose binding, otherwise a fine specimen.

233 lithographic plates protected by full-page tissue (one double-page), most of which in color, taken from drawings by Ottavio Muzzi. Complete work, not common to be found complete with the entire number of tables.

"The beautiful illustrations of the pathology make this one of the most important illustrated medical works of the 19th century. Cruveilhier, chief physician of pathological anatomy in Paris, here published the first description of multiple sclerosis and Cruveilhier's palsy. Hypertrophic pyloric stenosis and ulceration of the stomach due to hyperacidity was first described in the above work; each was given the name of Cruveilhier's disease. "

CONTENTS
Jean Cruveilhier (Limoges, 1791 - Sussac, 1874) was a very influential anatomist and made important contributions to medicine, thanks to his studies on the nervous system. He described the pathology of neuronal lesions seen in what is now known as multiple sclerosis, publishing the findings and illustrations in 1842 in the original edition of this atlas. He was also the first to document a patient's medical history with this disease.

He carried out extensive studies on inflammation of blood vessels, particularly phlebitis, which he believed was the general cause of most inflammations. Cruveilhier was also a writer, among his works we find Anatomie du corps humain pathologique (1829-1842) of which we publish the first edition in Italian here.
