Hirsch-H. IV, 916; Krivatsy 9553; Wellcome IV, 504; vgl. Choulant-Frank 232; VD17 12:177437G. Fourth or fifth Latin edition of Remmelin's popular anatomical atlas and flap book, first published in 1613. At the same time published also in Ulm by Görlin. With its flaps, it represents a novelty in the history of anatomical illustration. "This book is a treatise on anatomy, and consists of a series of plates in layers, so that the parts below can be seen in succession by lifting the hinged portions, an idea which originated with Remmelin" (Ferguson II, 253). The copper plates were drawn after Remmelin's designs by L. Kilian and engraved by S. Michelspacher. They show the anatomy of the man and the woman in full figure and a few highlighted details, each with a number of hinged flaps. The completeness of the moving parts, sometimes too many superimposed, cannot be established with certainty. See VD18 14380145-005 for Tabulae. Not much of this work, which lists the anatomical parts of the human body in a tabular way, and its real author befind the synonym is known. - Visit our website for additional images and information.
