Lanza, Benedetto, Maria Luisa Azzaroli Puccetti, Marta Poggesi, Antonio Martelli, Le Cere Anatomiche della Specola, Perugi, Liberto (photography), Florence, Arnaud Editore, 1979, first edition, 4to (11.5" x 8.5"), HB, brown cloth boards w/ lt yellow spine titles, white & color photographic dj w/ black titles, NF / NF..

253 pp. Profuse photographs, mainly in color, of anatomical wax figures. 26 full length models and 1500 studies of bodies and organs pictured from the 18th century collection of wax figures amassed by Peter Leopold in The Imperial-Royal Museum for Physics and Natural History in The Museo La Specola, Florence, Italy. In the early days of medicine, before photographs could illustrate the human form, wax models were carefully crafted to reveal the order and complexity of the human body. Like its American counterpart, the Mütter Museum, La Specola is a repository of such models. This dense, stunning collection features over 600 of the Museo's examples of medical structures, abnormalities, and exhibits. Text in Italian.     [Book ID # 1653]
