Description:

1st edition. Originally published in 9 fascicules between 1858 and 1859, each consisting of 8 pages of letterpress (unpaginated) and 4 fine lithographic plates printed on grey paper. Joseph Maclise (c.1815-1880?) studied medicine at University College, London, and continued his anatomical studies in Paris at l'École Pratique, L'Hôpital le Pitié, and subsequently settled into medical practice in London. He produced a number of other anatomical works, including 'Comparative Osteology: being Morphological Studies to Demonstrate the Archetype Skeleton of Vertebrated Animals' (1847) and Surgical Anatomy (1851).

Between 1861 and 1863 he shared his home with his brother, Daniel, a renowned Victorian artist and a member of the Royal Academy. Joseph was also an accomplished draughtsman, and produced the illustrations for his own publications. The current work was intended ‘to give a demonstration of those facts which have been already described by Sir A. Cooper* and others, and of those also which have not’ (The British and Foreign Medico-Chirurgical Review, 1858).
