Finely illustrated manuscript copy by James Batho from 1836 of an illustrated guide to ligaturing arteries. As well as rendering the lithographic plates of the printed text Batho has added an original dissected illustration of his own. Worn half calf over red cloth, part of back strip lacking, black morocco spine label. Bookplate of Dr Thomas Beverley Winch to first pastedown and presentation note from Winch to a friend; manuscript half title by Batho followed by manuscript title page which attributes the work to James Batho, 'Dorking 1836'. Batho has copied Garlick and Copperthwaite’s 1832 English translation of P J Manec’s treatise, adorning it with 11 superb pencil and gouache renderings of the lithographic plates. James Batho has rendered Plates III-XIV, each with tissue guard and interspersed with sections of relevant text, adding his own Plate XII, ‘Inferior Popliteal Artery’ which he has initialled 'JB Mar 16' unlike the other images. James Batho remains untraced.
