Not in Choulant-Frank. Wellcome V, 270; Heirs of Hippocrates 1370 (atlas) and 1371 (text); Weber, History of Lithography (1966) pp. 39-40. - FIRST EDITION, VERY RARE WITH THE TEXT VOLUME. Tiedemann was a pupil of Soemmerring, and he contributed to anatomy, physiology, and embryology. This large atlas, with plates remarkable for their beauty, accuracy, and originality of presentation, is one of the first works entirely devoted to the arterial system. In all the plates the arteries were hand-colored by the artist J. Roux. Tiedemann's work was also one of the first anatomy atlases produced in Germany using the new method of lithography. Tiedemann's life-size illustrations of the arteries were widely copied in the 19th century on account of their excellence.
