Magnificent collection of anatomical drawings - long regarded as among the great Treasures of the Renaissance. Published as medical books while he was teaching anatomy and dissection at the University Of Padua, they include the 'Tabulae Sex' (1538) , 'De Humani Corporis Fabrica' (1543) and the 'Epitome' (1543). Individually these books are milestones in the history of medicine. They also offer one of the most magnificent collections of anatomical drawings ever published. Many of the drawings were products of Titian's famous atelier. The editors have provided a very comprehensive history of Vesalius, his career, and explanations of the legends surrounding the illustrators, artists and publishers involved with the production of the book.
