Albinus on Anatomy
Bernard Siegfried Albinus was the greatest descriptive anatomist of the 18th- century. Over a period of twenty years he produced two volumes of drawings, 'Tables of The Skeleton and Muscles of the Human Body' and 'Tables of the Human Bones'. All 80 of those original copperplates engravings have been reproduced for this volume. Albinus introduced a new standard of accuracy into practical anatomy and of accuracy and beauty into anatomical illustrations. The muscles and bones of the human body are rendered individually and in related groups from varying perspectives . Eighty modern diagrams match each plate and identify each bone and muscle. With there finely wrought ornamental backgrounds Albinus's illustrations are as much works of art as they are scientific diagrams.
