Enc. moderna en plena piel con ruedas doradas en los planos y lomera cuajada. Exlibris de anterior poseedor. PRIMERA EDICIÓN de la más importante obra de ´anatomía humana´ después de la de Vesalio, y complementaria de ella. Juan Valverde, médico anatomista nacido en Amusco, Palencia, hacia 1525, marcha a Italia en 1542 donde ejerce de médico y profesor en Roma. Es el gran seguidor español de la nueva anatomía establecida por Andrea Vesalio en 1543 con su obra De humani corporis fabrica. Muchos de estos grabados son réplicas de las ilustraciones de Vesalio, y otras, con importantes avances científicos, son originales atribuidos a Gaspar Becerra, claramente influido por Miguel Ángel. Los grandes logros de Valverde son las correcciones a los clásicos e incluso a Vesalio, así como novedades sobre los músculos y órganos, en especial el ojo. Pero la importancia de la obra no solo radica en su aportación a la medicina sino también al uso del castellano como lengua de divulgación científica). Valverde es considerado como el anatomista español más importante del Renacimiento. Palau 349366.
