To the Editor:  —Recently, I had the fortune to secure a copy of "Editio Magna" of Vesalius, the 1543, Operinus, Basle Edition. I believe the copy, which I have, is the finest in this country. It belonged to Lancisi, and was given with his other books to the Library of The Holy Ghost in Rome in 1714. After that time the library was called. "The Biblioteca Lancisiana," and the books were dispersed at the time of the Napoleonic Invasion of Italy. I am anxious to communicate with others, who own copies of this edition, in order that a list and location of these books may be recorded.
