Folio. , 17pp., printed on thick paper. 4 elegantly drawn plates, each with outline key, by J. H. Meil after J. B. G. Hoppfer. Berlin: G. J. Decker, 1783. 643 x 453 mm. Original boards, some wear, plates loose in the binding probably as intended. Minor foxing and soiling, insignificant marginal tears in one or two plates, but very good. First Edition. “The four life-size plates in this large atlas realistically depict the autonomic nerve supply to the abdominal viscera. Each plate is accompanied by an exquisitely detailed outline drawing keyed to the text” (Heirs of Hippocrates 640). Walter studied anatomy in Berlin under Johann Friedrich Meckel the Elder, who appointed Walter prosector in the anatomical theater of the Medico-surgical College in 1760. After Meckel’s death in 1774 Walter became the college’s first professor of anatomy and obstetrics. He was also founder of the Museum der Berliner Hochschule, for which he made many anatomical preparations. See Garrison-Morton.com 2279 for Walter’s description of peritonitis. (Inventory #: 44006)
