Modern half morocco, gilt-decorated covers from the original portfolio adhered to front and back cover. FIRST EDITION. "Experience has taught me how unwilling artists are to study from text-books or from the corpse: in order that this may no longer be absolutely necessary, I have endeavoured to present my observations of the corpse and the model compared with the antique in as characteristic a plastic form as possible, and to provide for students a true picture of the living forms of the parts of the body touched upon, to supplement the lectures at art schools and academies " (Author's preface p. vi).
