New York: Thomas Whittaker, c. 1900. First English language edition. Stiff Card Covers. Poor. Dr. Schmidt, William S. Furneaux. Whittaker's Anatomical Model: A Pictorial Representation of the Human Frame and its Organs. New York: Thomas Whittaker (printed in Germany), c.1890-1900 (date based on Furneaux's other works), presumed first English edition. Decorative paper-covered boards over red cloth spine, 10 inches by 7 ˝ inches, pp. 16 plus multi-fold anatomical model inside rear cover. Covers show heavy wear and chipping to the edges and corners as well as several lights stains, scuffs and scratches. A previous owner has written their name in ballpoint on the front and back cover as well as writing "keep," underlined multiple times. The title page has a small stain and what is presumed to be a paper label over the publisher's name and information on the bottom of the title page the inside of the front cover have been peeled away leaving some paper remnants and light skinning. This is a spilled ink stain on p. 16 and a light smear from someone trying to clean it up. The full-color lithographic anatomy model is on the inside of the back cover and features two double-sided fold-out panels with a third panel printed on the rear board; there are also several smaller fold-outs and separate pieces that represent the organs. I believe all are present, though most of the fingers on the skeletal and muscular panels are missing. At some point long pieces of yellowed tape were used to reinforce the panel hinges as well as one of the lung hinges (there is also a small piece of paper glued or taped under the lung hinge). All in all, still a lovely anatomical representation. We ship our books in boxes or cardboard wraps, never in bags.
