The anatomy of the horse.

London: J. Purser for the author, 1766.

The first original work on equine anatomy after Ruini (No. 285).

Besides the first issue of this work, copies with text leaves identical to the first edition exist with the plates printed on paper watermarked 1798, 1813, and 1815. See No. 6610.54.
