Anatome animalium, terrestrium variorum, volatilium, aquatilium, serpentum, insectorum, ovorumque, structuram naturalem, ex veterum, recentiorum, propriisque observationibus proponens, figuris variis illustrata. Amsterdam: Johannes à Someren, 1681.
“The first comprehensive manual of comparative anatomy based on the original and literary researches of a working anatomist” (Cole). Blaes anticipated Cowper in finding the Cowper’s glands, which he illustrated in his plate of the genitalia and os penis of the rat. The 85 pages devoted to the anatomy of the dog was the first comprehensive and original treatise on a vertebrate since Ruini (No. 285).
Blasius first published much of the material in this work, including the treatise on the anatomy of the dog, in his Miscellanea anatomica, hominis, brutorumque variorum, fabricam diversam magna parte exhibentia (Amsterdam: Caspar Commelin, 1673.). In that work the Anatome canis appeared on pp. 168-252. Other materia previously appeared in Blasius's Observata anatomica in homine, simia, equo, virtulo, ovo....(Leiden, 1674).
