London: R.H. Laurie, 1842. Hardcover. The second edition of this scarce anatomy for artists, first published in 1743 under the title Compendium Anatomicum. Tinney was a print seller and renowned engraver who produced maps and topographical and architectural drawings. The work appears to have gone through several editions before this “second edition” of 1842: in 1752, 1762, 1808, 1827, and 1833. All copies, however, are scarce. It originally contained eight plates, and it was not until the 1808 edition printed for Robert Laurie and James Whittle that the work was extended to ten plates (Plate IX depicts a gladiator, with the final plate showing Hercules). Folio, pp. [vi]; with ten copper engraved plates, plate I cropped close along the fore-edge, occasional light dust-soiling and foxing; small nick with slight loss of paper affecting gutter of front free endpaper and first three leaves; title page lightly foxed; with printed prize book label and inscription on front pastedown, presented to “John A Clarke. For Original Designs and Models of Ornament, 1851” by the Royal Dublin Society; in contemporary half calf, a prize binding with the oval stamp of the “Gov. School of Design, R. Dublin Society” in gilt on both panels; stain affecting fore-edge of front panel; faint dampstain to the rear panel; a bit of wear to the spine heel; joints and extremities rubbed; still a good copy. Good. Item #70206
