Description: 184 pages with text in latin. 12mo, contemporary calf (rubbed). Leyden: David Lopes de Haro, 1644. BOUND WITH: NYMMAN, Gregory. Dissertatio de Vita Foetus in Utero. 87 pages. Leyden: David Lopes de Haro, 1644.Very good.

Comments: First combined edition of 3 rare works on generation. Plazzoni's work described the organs of human generation, and is notable for its early reference to perineal tears and rectovaginal fistulae, as well as its account of the vulvovaginal ducts, of which Bartholin was apparently unaware in his classic treatment of them. The Nymann work marks the transition from theological to scientific embryology in the 17th century, and is continuously paginated with Adrian Spigel's Epistola de Incerto Tempore Partus (pp. 63-87), which in this copy is slightly wormed in margins. Spigel is best known as the author of the text of the finest anatomical atlas of the century, and for his first extensive account of malaria.

Dear Argosy - you've made my day - my order (Netherlands at War, 1940-1945) arrived on my doorstep this morning unheralded and very, very welcome. My sisters and I are Dutch immigrants in New Zealand and we all lived through that war 60 plus years ago as young kids. We had occasion to share what we remembered recently - and now you've supplied the book. I can't tell you what this means... - Dorothea B.
