Garrison Morton 2975; Heirs of Hippocrates 1103; Wellcome V, p.36; Loria, Antonio Scarpa, p.62; not in Waller or Norman. RARE FIRST EDITION of this important treatise which includes ten spectacular lifesize anatomical drawings and in which the author introduces the concept of arteriosclerosis and determines the differences between a true and a false aneurysm. "Scarpa's large and excellent monograph on aneurisms, written on the detailed and comparative studies of the normal and pathologic tissues involved, established for the first time that an aneurism is not a simple dilation of an artery, but actually the result of profound and significant changes in the arterial vascular tunics. In order to provide a safe pattern for operative procedures on the large arteries he showed them with well-defined illustrations on his topgraphic sketches. These magnificent anatomical drawings are still considered tremendously important in the study of this well-determined subject today" (Loria). "In Sull' aneurisma, Scarpa makes the first distinction between true and false aneurysms. The ten accompanying plates drawn by Scarpa and engraved by Anderloni are exquisitely executed."
