RARE SECOND EDITION of this compilation and the first under this new title. Fabrici's first published anatomical work was originally published in Venice in 1600. It is dealing with the eye, the throat and the ear, all illustrated with detailed engravings. "The major portion of this work on the organs of vision, speech, and hearing is devoted to the eye, and it is clear that Fabricius was one of the first to grasp the true form and proper location of the lens. Although his description of the ear is sound, it contributed no new knowledge about the ear or the sense of hearing. An extremely competent comparative anatomist, he was at his best in dealing with the laryngeal apparatus" (Heirs of Hippocrates 365). This work, together with his many other anatomical studies were intended to form a monumental Totius animalis fabricae theatrum, which however never appeared in print. Girolamo Fabrici, also known from the Latin form of his name as Hieronymus Fabricius ab Aquapendente, taught anatomy at the University of Padua, where he had previously studied under Gabriele Falioppio, himself a student of Vesalius. Fabrici published a series of works on aspects of anatomy, including the present work on human speech organs and the physiology of voice production. - Visit our website to see more images!
