Modern quarter cloth, original printed boards, new printed paper spine label; new free end-papers. AUTHOR'S COPY, with his rubber stamp. Fine. FIRST EDITION of this "Comparative diagnostic atlas of skin diseases and syphilis, including mucous membranes adjoining the skin." [tans. of title]. "This publication was intended to be a comparative diagnostic atlas. Accordingly, most of the pictures on any one page are of several different but similar diseases found in the same part of the body…. The majority of the illustrations are water colours painted by Ehrmann himself, or painted under his supervision by Mr. Edelmann and Mr. Ignaz Schonfeld, two pupils of the Vienna Academy of Art. Some of the pictures are of moulages. Some of these are taken from other books. The best illustrations are those which depict smaller parts of the body, such as the hands or the feet." [Ehring]. Salomon Ehrmann was the director of the dermatological department of Vienna's General Hospital. Ehring, Hautkrankheiten / skin diseases, p. 244.
