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".
