Text in Latin and Dutch (in double columns for Thesaurus Animalium 1710 and part IV of Anatomicus only). Later marbled boards backed in period morocco; (pages untrimmed, edges slighty curled, minor marginal tears, some minor tears to plates, some light browning; spine chipped and lost in some areas, edges worn). First Edition for 1710. Frederik Ruysch was a Dutch Botanist, anatomist artist and early museologist. He is remembered for his developments in anatomical preservation and the creation of dioramas or scenes incorporating human body parts. These dream-like concoctions are illustrated in the Thesaurus Anatomicus on large folding plates. Ruysch’s Thesaurus Animalium (and the bound-in Thesaurus Anatomicus) describe and illustrate the spectacular collections of "Anatomical Treasures" which Ruysch produced for display in his home museum between 1701 and 1716 using secret methods of anatomical injection and preservation. Ruysch’s unique anatomical preparations attracted many notables to his museum, including Czar Peter the Great of Russia. Because most of the preparations did not survive, Ruysch’s preparations, and his museum, are known primarily from these publications. Garrison-Morton 38. N° de ref. de la librería D2449
