Description

Brain/Nervous system. SWAN. Névrologie ou description anatomique du Corps Humain.
 
SWAN, Joseph. Névrologie ou description anatomique du Corps Humain. Traduit de l’anglais avec des additions par E. Chassaignac. Accompagné de 25 Planches gravées à Londres.  
Paris, Baillière, 1838. 

In-4to mm 290 x 230 ; Cartonatura editoriale coeva, dorso in tela; pp. XXIV, 210, 2, con 25 tavole disegnate da West e incise su acciaio da Finden con testo a fronte. Un timbro di biblioteca estinta e fioriture diffuse. 

Interessante traduzione francese di questa rara e importante opera dell’anatomista inglese Joseph Swan, apparsa a Londra nel 1830. Opera pregevole per l’approfondita indagine anatomica del sistema nervoso, frutto di innumerevoli dissezioni, e per la chiarezza delle tavole disegnate da West e incise da Finden.
Cfr. O.D.N.B., ad vocem: "Swan was a born anatomist, practical rather than theoretical, and with a native genious for dissection. Of retired and modest disposition, he remained personally almost unknown, and the value of his work is only now beginning to be appreciated".
