Norman 1897; Choulant p. 299; Garrsion-Morton 1253; Heirs of Hippocrates 1105; Waller 8545. - FIRST EDITION of "SCARPA'S ANATOMIC MASTERPIECE, the product of twenty years of research on the nerves. The seven life-size plates illustrate the human glossopharyngeal, vagus and hypoglossal nerves, which had never before been correctly shown. Scarpa was also the first to delineate correctly the nerves of the heart, and showed that the terminal ramifications of the cardiac nerves are directly connected to cardiac muscular fibers" (Norman). The plates were engraved from Scarpa's own drawings by Faustino Anderloni (1766-1847). "This elegantly illustrated anatomical atlas is regarded as Scarpa's greatest work. The result of 20 years of research, it includes the first proper delineation of the glossopharyngeal, vagus, hypoglossal, and cardiac nerves, and the first demonstration of cardiac innervation. Scarpa was a skillful draughtsman. He personally trained Faustino Anderloni, the artist who made the drawings and engraved the copperplates for his books" (Garrison-Morton). - Visit our website to see more images!
