Anatomia Humani Corporis (Atlas of Human Anatomy), Bidloo, Govard
1 Bidloo, GovardAnatomia Humani Corporis (Atlas of Human Anatomy)
Paris: Editions Roger DaCosta, 1972. Facsimile edition of Bidloo's noted atlas of human anatomy first published in Amsterdam in 1685. Large 4to (11"x16"), bound in burgundy leatherette, marbled end-papers, all edges gilt. No. 411 of 2000 copies printed. A bit of rubbing at top and bottom of spine, otherwise fine. The atlas is illustrated with 105 plates by Gerard de Lairesse, showing the human figure both in living attitudes and as dissected cadavers. The book was later plagiarized by English surgeon William Cowper for his Anatomy of the Humane Bodies (1698), which gave no credit to either Bidloo or de Lairesse. This led to a number of vitriolic exchanges between Bidloo and Cowper, including several pamphlets published in each anatomist's defense. William III, Dutch stadholder and king of England, asked Bidloo to become his personal physician in 1695. The king died in his arms on 8 March 1702..

3 Nichols, Dr. PerryCancer: It's Proper Treatment and Cure / The Dr. Nichols Sanatorium / The Value of Escharotics - or Medicines whih will Destroy any Living or Fungus Tissue in the Treatment o fCancer, Lupus, Chronic Ulcers and Tumors
East Aurora [NY]: At the Roycroft Shops, 1925. 1st ed., 8vo, embossed leatherette covers. 256 pp. The Nichols Sanitorium had treated 3300 patients up to 1918, and by 1956 the list had grown to 70,000. Many medical doctors did not recognize the Sanitorium as a valid medical institution, but the thousands of people who came to Savannah as a last resort and almost without hope, and who left after treatment to live for many years in comfort, seemed to be sufficient proof that this place did relieve suffering and that it added years to the lives of those who were treated. Dr. Nichols died in September 1925 and the Sanitorium passed into the hands of his daughter. This memorial to his work is notable for the quality of the Roycroft's production and binding. Very good condition; some light stains on back cover and some minor edgewear. Interior is pristine..
