Condition: See description


1786. KOELER, Georg Ludwig. EXPERIMENTA CIRCA REGENERATIONEM OSSIUM. Gottingen: J.C. Dieterich, 1786. Octavo. [ii]105[3]pp. + 3 finely engraved folding plates showing bone surfaces and sections. Title engraving features strange little bone-regeneration cherubim performing operations on fowl, an animal of indeterminate species, and a young boy. Koeler (1760-1807) studied with his uncle, August Gottlieb Richter, eminent professor of surgery and ophthalmology at Groningen, and eponym of "Richter's hernia." He dedicated this, his best-known work, to Richter. He received his degree in 1786, and became professor of botany and medicine in Mainz. Moderate foxing to text; none to plates. Attractive recent binding of quarter buckram and marbled paper. A rare book.
