A reprint of the 1616 Jaggard edition of Crooke's medical text, which was extracted by the Scottish physician Alexander Reid from Crooke's longer Microcosmographia of 1615 (and expanded for the 1631 second edition), which ran to over a thousand pages. This smaller edition was designed to be cheaper and quicker to read, according to Reid's preface, and references to the longer descriptions in the larger work are given on most of the pages. The publisher, Thomas Cotes, also produced the first English edition of the works of Ambroise Paré in 1634 (see lot 186 for Paré's own work).

Crooke (1576-1648) based his work on those of Bauhin and Du Laurens, which were in their turn based on Vesalius, and there is certainly some similarity in the illustrations. Its publication was controversial as it was written in English and both the Royal College of Physicians and the bishop of London felt it was highly inappropriate to describe reproductive organs in the vernacular.
