DESCRIPTION


This is arguably the best-known book in the history of Western medicine. Published in 1543, at the height of the Renaissance, it is an exhaustive visual atlas and verbal description of human anatomy based in part on the author's own dissections; its massive Latin text of over 700 folio pages contains extensive descriptions of the tools and techniques of dissection, as well as the structures of the human body those tools and techniques reveal. The whole is illustrated by a remarkable series of woodcuts from the circle of Titian. A book of great intellectual complexity and physical beauty, it was also a work of daring, reflecting author´s ambition and his desire to use the new technology of printing and the developing artistic techniques of the period to push the edges of contemporary anatomical knowledge.

To a modern reader, the most striking and original aspect of this work is its heavy reliance on images. Furthermore, the illustrations were works of art in their own right; even the simplest far exceeded all previously published anatomical images in clarity and detail, and the more elaborate were extraordinary for their beauty and the originality of their conception.
