16th Century Surgical and Anatomical Prints

 

Here are a few pages from an early, very important medical book which is in large part based on the famous anatomist Andreas VESALIUS (1514 - 1564). Vesalius who studied anatomy in Paris and in Leuwen (Belgium) travelled as a physician and surgeon with the fighting armies during the wars between Charles V. and Francis I., gave his first scientific lectures in Basel starting in 1540, was a professor in Padua, Pisa and Bologna In Madrid, where he was the personal M.D. to Philipp II, he was thought to be a sorcerer and sentenced to death by the Inquisition. Philipp pardoned him, but made him travel to Jerusalem as a penitent, a voyage from which he did not return as his ship wrecked on the rocks of the island of Zante. His main work "De humani corporis fabrica", Basel 1543 was a revolutionarily important breakthrough on human anatomy We offer here an early French edition of 1597 based on Vesalius. Here is the title of the work:
