[Mükemmel Mir’at-ı Vücud-i Nisa / The Complete Overview of the Woman’s Parts].

4°: 10 pp., in French and Ottoman, composition of chromolithographed moving pieces, joined in 1 colour chromolithographed folding image mounted on the inner side of the front wrappers, original printed lettering of the wrappers over renewed boards, original blue cloth spine (good, minor marginal water-staining, some pieces of internal organs restored on joints, boards new with pasted-down original wrappers, marginal chipping).

This apparently unrecorded Ottoman book presents the female body and is a corollary to the previous item in this catalogue, issued three years earlier by the same publisher.

In the chromolithographed composition mounted inside the front cover, the body of a woman is composed of four layers, each printed from both sides, representing the body, muscles, skeleton, nervous system and circulatory system. The layers additionally feature small folding and movable parts.

The work represents a major step forward in showcasing anatomy in manner that is comprehensible to laymen, as opposed to medical professionals.

The book is seemingly unrecorded; we could not trace any institutional examples or bibliographical references.
