The hand : its mechanism and vital endowments as evincing design by Charles Bell( Book )

140 editions published between 1833 and 2010 in English and German and held by 1,173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bell's The hand is one of the greatest classics of comparative anatomy and one of the first books ever on bio-mechanics. In answer to the Earl of Bridgewater's request for monographs in science illustrating the master plan of God, Bell wrote what is now considered the most famous, Treatise IV. In this work, Bell compared the upper extremity of man to that of the animals, and he graphically described and illustrated the principles of anatomy as related to function
The anatomy and philosophy of expression as connected with the fine arts by Charles Bell( Book )

95 editions published between 1844 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 649 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bell introduced new methods of determining the functional anatomy of the nervous system. In 1804 Bell moved to London, where he opened his own school of anatomy and gradually built up a surgical practice. He combined his skill in painting with his scientific interests in Essays on the anatomy of expression in painting (1806). Besides being an exposition of the anatomical and physiological basis of facial expressions for artists, the book included much philosophy and critical history of art. The book gained Bell some reputation and remained popular, going through several editions up to 1893. -- DSB, vol. 1, p. 583

Essays on the anatomy of expression in painting by Charles Bell( Book )

28 editions published between 1806 and 2013 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First edition of Bell's (1774-1842) important study of the anatomy and physiology of facial expression. The expressions, attitudes, and movements of the human body had always interested scientists as well as artists,but never before had thy been treated with such depth and conciseness. The work reflects Bell's brilliance as both artist and anatomist, and inspired Darwin's own Expression of the Emotions (1872), which he described Bell as one of the founders of the subject as a branch of science.

"It is not an easy task to reconcile two subjects so far apart in the minds of most readers as anatomy and the fine arts. The academies of Europe, instituted for the improvement of painting, stop short of the science of anatomy, which is so well suited to enlarge the mind, and to train the eye for observing the forms of nature; or if they enforce the study at all, it is only in its more obvious application, that of assisting the drawing of the human figure. But my design in this volume goes farther: I propose to direct attention to the characteristic forms of man and brutes by an inquiry into the natural functions, with a view to comprehend the rationale of those changes in the countenance and figure which are indicative of passion"--Introduction.
