De re Anatomica libri XV. Paris, André Wechel, 1572. In-8, soft vellum (contemporary binding).
Important treatise on anatomy by Realdus Columbus (c. 1515-1559), friend and pupil of Vesalius to whom he succeeded to the chair of the University of Padua, to whom we owe the discovery of pulmonary circulation (cf. Garrison-Morton n°378.1, and Heirs of Hippocrates no. 304, for the first edition published in Venice in 1559).
Wechel's typographical mark on the title and back of the last page.
Some light freckles, wetness at the foot of some pages and notebooks. Hook on the upper cover, volume partly detached from the spine.
