FURNEAUX, William S. (edit.).
Philips' Popular Manikin or Model of the Human Body. An Illustrated Representation with Full and Descriptive Letterpress.

pp. 16. 2 double-sided MALE human figures folding over another central figure; the outer figures show HEART & BLOOD-VESSELS, SKELETON, SUPERFICIAL MUSCLES, DEEPER MUSCLES & EYE; the central figure shows the VISCERA [with numerous overlays], all in chromo-lithography. Cloth-backed paper boards, the front cover with a coloured vignette, the covers a little dusted and slightly bowed, the internal figures in fine condition.

*The text is by EDUARD OSKAR SCHMIDT [1823-1886], translated and edited by Furneaux, originally published in the 1890s and reissued a number of times into the 1930s. These overlay figures are clearly fragile and easily torn and when completely intact, as here, uncommon.
