A rare medical book on splanchnology, issued by the Imperial Medical School in Istanbul.
The richly illustrated book with images of the digestive, urinary, reproductive and respiratory systems, was published in a limited edition in the technique of hectograph only for the students of the second year at the institution.

We could not trace any institutional examples of the book on Worlcat, nor any references to it in the bibliography of Ottoman books.
