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.

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.

Dr. Nichols died in September 1925 and the Sanitorium passed into the hands of hi... View more info
