First Edition. Manec was head of anatomy at the Facultè de Médecine de Paris and a surgeon at the Salpetrière. He wrote the text of his atlas on ligations of arteries in the first person, based upon his experience performing the operations. Manec’s striking surgical atlas on arterial ligature is illustrated with 13 lithographed plates drawn by Nicolas-Henri Jacob, the illustrator of Jean-Baptiste Bourgery’s magnificent multi-volume atlas of human anatomy. This is the first hand-colored copy we have handled in 50 years of trading. Bibliotheca Walleriana 6210. Garrison-Morton.com 14180. Bibliotheca Walleriana 6210.Book Id: 51330
