Subject: Re: [ZOOARCH] Domestic animals anatomy



Mohammad, Salam. You ask a question near to my heart, because I cut my

osteological teeth on Sisson & Grossmann and still consider it the most

beautiful textbook ever written on the subject of animal anatomy. You see,

you don't need to get Ellenberger and Baum; all the wonderful, detailed

plates from their original early 19th-century work are reproduced in

Sisson and Grossmann's "Anatomy of the Domestic Animals." You can buy this

book easily, but let me give you some pointers:



1. Editions printed from 1933 - 1947 are well bound and well printed on

excellent quality paper. You can buy these old editions from equestrian

used book dealers, and sometimes even from ordinary used bookstores

through Amazon.com and the like. These editions contain everything in a

single volume, i.e. horse, cow, pig, sheep/goat, dog. The authors are

simply "Sisson and Grossmann".



2. BEWARE of reprints of the old volumes that have been produced cheaply,

badly printed and bound on icky matte paper. Do not buy these. Check date

and publisher before buying; and check the price too, because even a

tattered copy of the real Sisson & Grossmann will command about $80, and a

copy in better condition will go for about $150. The original publisher is

W.B. Saunders Co., Philadelphia.



3. You can also buy a recently-upgraded version of this book, which is

under the editorship of Getty. The title of this book is "Getty's Sisson

and Grossmann's Anatomy of the Domestic Animals." This book comes as a

two-volume set, and it still contains all the old Ellenberger & Baum

illustrations; but it also contains much more text, more explanation of

biomechanics and systems functioning/physiology than did the old

one-volume book. The two-volume set goes for something like $200 new.



....so we have a history here, from Ellenberger & Baum's original early

19th-century "Anatomie fur Kunstlers", through Sisson & Grossmann, and

finally to Getty. Which all goes to prove that old veterinarians do not

die, they just get re-edited.



I've also always been in awe of the fact that the original horses, cows,

pigs and dogs that the "Kunstlers" drew their matchlessly beautiful plates

from, all died in the 1820's and have, through those pages so often copied

and re-copied, continued to serve mankind by furnishing detailed knowledge

of their body structure, for nearly 200 years. -- Dr. Deb
