Florence:: R. Lier & Co., 1925., 1925. 8vo. 98,  pp. 27 illus. Quarter beige brown-stamped cloth over grey paper; library markings. Very good. Facsimile edition. Annotations by Harvey Cushing (1869-1939) and Edward Clark Streeter (1874-1947). "The first book in which each muscle was illustrated separately, with copper-plates of the bones and muscles of the upper limb from drawings by Girolamo da Carpi, which in realism and exactitude surpassed anything between Leonardo and Vesalius. But having seen the woodcuts in Vesalius's Fabrica, the high-minded Ferrarese is said to have deliberately "suppressed his own book, and only 11 copies are now extant" (A. C. Klebs). This work was reprinted in facsimile in Florence, 1925, edited by Harvey Cushing and Edward Clark Streeter." – Garrison and Morton 373. Cushing Bibliography, 243.
