Garrison-Morton 399.2; Heirs of Hippocrates 1011; NLM/Blake p. 309; Russell 613; Wellcome IV p. 156. - FIRST EDITION. "The first serious study of this subject and the most original anatomical work by the greatest of the Monro dynasty" (Garrison-Morton). "This classic work contains the first full anatomical description of the sacs between the tendons and bones which Albinus had named the bursae mucosae. They are illustrated on ten plates which for explicit clarity and accuracy have not been improved upon" (Heirs of Hippocrates). Of these plates, four are particularly remarkable for having life-sized representations of the arm and leg bones - from finger and toe-tip to shoulder and hip bone. Each of these is constructed from two sheets and as a result, some copies of the work are found with the plates in two parts, and others incomplete.
