Choulant-Frank, pp. 200-204; Waller 7332-7334; Wellcome II, p. 347. RARE FIRST COLLECTED EDITION of the works of Petrioli (1720-1760). The original drawings of Bartholomeo Eustachio which he finished in 1552 were rediscovered by Giovanni Maria Lancisi in the Vatican Library and originally published by him in 1714. With these plates Lancisi was able to complete Eustachio's work. Petrioli, who had permission from Cardinal Caraffa to study Eustachio's plates re-publish them in the present work.
Riflessioni Anatomiche was first issued without the plates, which were added in 1741, and the text seems originally to have ended at p. 78; there is also an apparent break at p. 32. The first section ends at p. 98; a separate (later?) section begins on p. 99 and its paging and signature sequence continues that of the first section. The second section has its own caption title and imprint information in the colophon. Caption title (p. 99): Proseguimento delle Riflessioni, ed ommissioni anatomiche fatto da Gaetano Petrioli Romano ... alle insigni Tavole anatomiche dell'inclito Bartolomeo Eustachio ... e dal dottissimo medico Gio. Maria Lancisi pria d'ogn'altro commentate, ed ora dal suddetto Petrioli per ordine preciso de medesimo, accresciute, ed emendate, con molti novissimi usi dagl'altri non considerati. Colophon on p. 200 reads "In Roma, nella Stamperia di Antonio de'Rossi, nella Strada del Seminario Romano." The work includes descriptions in Latin (2nd 10 p. sequence) by Eustachius of the first 8 figures of his Tabulae anatomicae; also, descriptions in Italian by Lancisi (p. 1-37 of the 99 p. sequence) of the figures 9-47 of the Tabulae anatomicae. The section by Eustachius has caption title: Tabularum octo, quae sequuntur ejusdem celeberrimi Bartholomeaei Eustachii, auctoris commentarii De tabularum usu. First leaf of plates: tabula prima-quarta. Second leaf: tabula quinta-octava. The remaining 37 leaves are numbered IX-XXXXVII. Our issue of the second work "Corso Anatomico" has just the drop title "Dissertazione Dimonstrative"on p. 245. The title and preliminary leaf found in separately issued copies was probably skipped in this collected edition (see Wellcome II, p.347 for the two variants).
