Wellcome V, p.348; Garrison-Morton 313; Heirs of Hippocrates 1074; Meyer, History of Cerebral Anatomy, pp.22-24. - FIRST EDITION, AND EXCEPTIONALLY RARE WITH TEXT VOLUMES AND ATLAS COMPLETE AS HERE. "Vizq d'Azyr, the permanent secretary to the Paris Academy of Medicine and personal physician of Marie Antoinette, found that his dissections of the brain were facilitated by first hardening the brain in alcohol. He identified accurately for the first time many of the cerebral convolutions, along with various internal structures of the brain. He rediscovered the white line in calarine cortex and described the mammillothalmic tract which still bears his name, as well as the central sulcus with the pre- and postcentral convolutions and insula twenty years before Reil and Rolando (McHenry, pp.104-105, see Garrison-M). The atlas was part of his posthumous publication, the only collected edition of all his work. It contains thirty-nine plates devoted almost exclusively to neuroanatomy. Some of the finest and most accurate views of the brain and nervous system to be found in neurological literature are contained therein (Garrison-M). - Visit our website to see more images!
