Description
Discover one of the most comprehensive and beautifully illustrated anatomical treatises ever published. The product of more than two decades of dedication, and spanning descriptive, surgical, microscopic, and general anatomy, as well as embryology, The Atlas of Anatomy marks to this day a major achievement in medical history, and a breathtaking insight into the workings and wonder of the human body. We owe a great debt to Jean Baptiste Marc Bourgery (1797ndash;1849) for his Atlas of Anatomy, which was not only a massive event in medical history, but also remains one of the most comprehensive and beautifully illustrated anatomical treatises ever published. The eight volumes of Bourgeryrsquo;s treatise cover descriptive anatomy, surgical anatomy and techniques (exploring in detail nearly all the major operations that were performed during the first half of the 19th century), general anatomy and embryology, and microscopic anatomy. Jacobrsquo;s spectacular hand-colored, life-size lithographs are remarkable for their clarity, color, and aesthetic appeal, reflecting a combination of direct laboratory observation and illustrative research. Unsurpassed to this day, the images offer exceptional anatomical insight, not only for those in the medical field but also for artists, students, and anyone interested in the workings and wonder of the human body.
