Garrison-Morton 409.1; Wellcome IV, p.73; Roberts & Tomlinson p. 390; Sappol, Dream Anatomy pp.126 and 130; DSB IX, p.154. - Small folio authorized edition of Masgagni's great Anatomia Universa. As incredibly spectacular as the images of the Anatomia Universa were, Antonio Serantoni, the artist responsible for the drawing, engraving, and hand-coloring of that enormous work, recognized that its great size made it excessively expensive and virtually impossible to use. Therefore, three years after completion of the elephantine edition he issued a new edition as a normal-sized folio from Florence, with reduced versions of the spectacular hand-colored plates, and many changes. It is from this version that the work is generally known. - Visit our website to see more images!
