74/2101 [Anatomy]. Bidloo, G. Ontleding des menschelyken lichaams. Utr., J. van Poolsum, 1728, 2nd Dutch ed., (10)textp., engr. frontisp., 106 (fold.) plates (1x on 2 plates), probably engraved by A. BLOTELING after designs by G. DE LAIRESSE, each plate w. accomp. letterpress textleaf, 19th cent. gilt hcalf, large folio.

- One textp. w. thumb-sized inkstain; the plate of the female nude body w. contemp. added pubic hair in pen and ink; one plate sl. stained; one plate w. neatly closed large tear and one plate w. neatly closed small tear in blank margin; a few leaves w. (sl.) (finger)soiling in margins; occas. sl. foxed/ spotted; new endpapers. Binding worn along extremities; joints starting but holding well.

= The second Dutch edition, originally published in Latin in 1685 (Bibl. Walleriana 1039; Krivatsky 1239; Choulant p.93-95). This edition not in the usual bibliographies. Splendid baroque anatomical atlas. "For Lairesse, the anatomical illustrations Bidloo asked him to undertake were an occasion for an artistic meditation on anatomy: he displayed his figures in an emotional, almost tender manner, contrasting the raw dissected parts with the full, soft surfaces of uncut flesh, placing flayed, bound figures in ordinary nightclothes or bedding, setting ordinary household objects such as books, jars or cabinets in the same scene as cut-up torsos or limbs, and in one plate showing a fly crawling on an opened abdomen. His illustrations brought the qualities of Dutch still-life painting into anatomical illustration, and gave a new, darker spiritual expression to the significance of the act of dissection." (Norman Library no. 231); "These are masterpieces of Dutch baroque art. When William of Orange came to England in 1688, Bidloo was chosen to accompany him as his physician." (Garrison/ Morton 385 (Latin ed.)). SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE XLVI.
