New York: By the Author at the Anatomical Museum 1847. First Edition. viii, [9]-220, [3] pages. 8vo. Rebound in modern brown cloth with paper spine label. Occasional smudging, foxing. One small marginal hole not affecting text. Plates and figures are irregularly numbered and scattered throughout the volume. Including frontispiece, this copy has 27 (colored or tinted) plates with 35 numbered figures (numbered 1 through 36 but skipping number 9). Additionally we find the frontis, full page venous and arterial views, and an un numbered trunk view in the rear. Many additional black and white engravings in the text. In addition to the many illustrations, the text often refers to other treatises of the time that have other illustrations. Very Good. Cloth. [26112]


OCLC attributes this work to Wooster Beach. Beach was an eclectic medicine practitioner and some note the founder of that branch of medicine. This work is somewhat confusing bibliographically, because many of the plates (which are not included in the pagination) don't appear to be referenced in the text. Making matters more confusing, the text often refers to illustrations that appear in other works. Apparently complete but less than conventional in makeup.
