Estimate: €2,000 - €3,000

Description: COWPER Guillaume. Anatomia corporum humanorum. Leyde, Johan Arnold Langerak, 1739; grand in-folio de [72] ff., 119 pl., veau brun, dos à nerfs orné de caissons à fleurons dorés, tranches rouges.


Notes: Édition originale latine, traduite d’après la version anglaise 1698.
Titre-frontispice gravé et 114 superbes planches – la plupart en grandeur nature –, dont 105 d’après Gérard de Lairesse, dessinées à l’origine pour l’ouvrage du chirurgien Bidloo publié en 1685. Guillaume Cowper reprit les planches en y ajoutant ses commentaires; des poursuites pour plagiat s’ensuivirent. De fait, seules les 9planches ajoutées en appendice en fin d’ouvrage sont propres à Cowper. On trouve également dans cet exemplaire un second appendice contenant les 5planches supplémentaires gravées pour l’édition d’Utrecht en 1750; l’exemplaire réunit ainsi les qualités de la première et de la seconde édition latine, avec un total de 120planches gravées. Une vignette macabre gravée en page de titre.
Ex-libris d’Édouard de Laplane (maire de Sisteron au début du XIXesiècle), légères taches et rousseurs. Charnière fendue, coins restaurés, coiffes en partie détachées.
Brunet, II, 398.- Garrison & Morton, 698.
