Heirs of Hippocrates, 1803; Garrison-Morton 2297.1; Hirsch-H. III, 706; Goldschmid 198 ff. + pls. 40-41. First Edition. Monumental Atlas of pathological anatomy. "Lebert set out to cover both general and special pathology. The superb hand-coloured copperplate engravings of macro- and micropathology in this work are among the finest ever published" (G-M 2297.1). "Lebert's work covers a much wider range than that of Cruveilhier [Anatomie pathologique du corps humain...] or Carswell [Pathological anatomy...] and includes many examples of macroscopic and microscopic anatomy and pathology together with many illustrations of gross specimens. The text volumes provide detailed descriptions of both gross pathology and micropathology, the treatment of some plates amounting to short treatises in themselves. A brief history of pathology dating from the sixteenth century is also included. At the beginning of each atlas volume is a section which conveniently lists and describes each plate. The 200 hand-colored copper engravings are of superb quality and are reminders of the excellence of medical illustration during the nineteenth century." (Heirs of Hippocrates, 1803).
"Eines der umfangreichsten und zugleich bedeutendsten Werke der Abbildungsliteratur. Bei Lebert findet sich farbiger Kupferstich in Mehrplattendruck auf der höchsten Stufe technischer Vollendung; für mazerierte Knochenpräparate auch einfach getönter Punktierstich, weiterhin sehr reichlich Aquatintamanier und fast regelmässiger Pinselretusche" (Goldschmid). - Visit our website to see more images!
