    Mediolani: Ex Tipografia Joannis Pirottae, 1817. First edition of this large and important work on the structure of the urethra. Four large engraved plates by Filippo Bedetti, engraved by Carlo Dellarocca, to the rear of the book. Green softback covers with some marking to the cover. The paper on the spine has has considerable loss, but the binding is still holding well. Internally mainly clean, with a little marking, foxing and few small worm holes. Plates have light staining to the edges, but still mainly clean and tidy. A scarce item. xii, 60 pp. 460 x 330 mm (18 x 13 inches). In the beginning of the 19th century, when both vascular and cellular texture theories concerning the penis structure were still coexisting, three figures were involved in the controversy about the priority of the discovery of the vascular nature of human erectile tissues: Paolo Mascagni (1755-1815), represented by
    his pupil Tommaso Farnese (1780-1829), and Alessandro Moreschi (1771-1826). In the Elogio del celebre
    anatomico Paolo Mascagni (1816), Farnese attributed to his mentor the demonstration in 1809 of the continuity between arteries and veins and the description of venous plexuses, this term replacing the previous (and misleading) name of spongy body attributed to the inner part of penis. But in 1817 Moreschi inflamed the dispute, claiming for the priority of that discovery, with the publication of his anatomical work and a polemical essay against Farnese. Farnese promptly replied with Note addizionali del Dottore Tommaso Farnese al suo elogio di Paolo Mascagni (1818), where he reported a meeting with Moreschi in Bologna in 1810. On that occasion, Farnese explained a Mascagni's technique to perfuse urethral blood vessels that Moreschi would have plagiarized. Furthermore, Farnese also included eight testimonies claiming to have seen Mascagni performing such injections before 1810. The Prodromo della grande anatomia, a posthumous work of Mascagni edited in 1819, includes a plate dedicated to the structure of the urethra and a comprehensive view of this scientific story. In short, Mascagni developed a technique to inject urethral blood vessels, but Moreschi was the first to publish an accurate work on this subject. For this reason, many Italian and international authors have attributed to the latter the discovery of the venous circulation of the urethra. Edition originale de ce grand et important ouvrage sur la structure de l'urètre. Quatre grandes planches gravées par Filippo Bedetti, gravées par Carlo Dellarocca, au dos du livre. Couvertures vertes avec quelques marques sur la couverture. Le papier sur le dos a une perte considérable, mais la reliure tient toujours bien. Intérieur principalement propre, avec un peu de marquage, des rousseurs et quelques petits trous de vers. Les assiettes ont de légères taches sur les bords, mais restent généralement propres et bien rangées. Un objet rare. xii, 60 pages.
    Au début du XIXe siècle, lorsque les théories de la texture vasculaire et cellulaire concernant
    la structure du pénis coexistaient encore, trois personnalités étaient impliquées dans la polémique sur la priorité de la découverte de la nature vasculaire des tissus érectiles humains : Paolo Mascagni (1755-1815), représenté par son élève Tommaso Farnese (1780-1829) et Alessandro Moreschi (1771-1826). Dans l'Elogio del celebre anatomico Paolo Mascagni (1816), Farnèse attribue à son mentor la démonstration en 1809 de la continuité entre les artères et les veines et la description des plexus veineux, ce terme remplaçant le nom précédent (et trompeur) de corps spongieux attribué à la partie interne du pénis. Mais en 1817, Moreschi enflamma la dispute, revendiquant la priorité de cette découverte, avec la publication de son ouvrage anatomique et d'un essai polémique contre Farnèse. Farnese a rapidement répondu avec Note addizionali del Dottore Tommaso Farnese al suo elogio di Paolo Mascagni (1818), où il a rapporté une rencontre avec Moreschi à Bologne en 1810. À cette occasion, Farnese a expliqué la technique de Mascagni pour perfuser les vaisseaux sanguins de l'urètre que Moreschi aurait plagié. En outre, Farnèse a également inclus huit témoignages affirmant avoir vu Mascagni effectuer de telles injections avant 1810. Le Prodromo della grande anatomia, un ouvrage posthume de Mascagni édité en 1819, comprend une planche consacrée à la structure de l'urètre et une vue complète de ce scientifique récit. Bref, Mascagni a mis au point une technique pour injecter des vaisseaux sanguins urétraux, mais Moreschi a été le premier à publier un ouvrage précis sur ce sujet. Pour cette raison, de nombreux auteurs italiens et internationaux ont attribué à ce dernier la découverte de la circulation veineuse de l'urètre.
