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

123 editions published between 1833 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,232 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 )

97 editions published between 1844 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 683 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 356 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.
