The fabric of the human body : an annotated translation of the 1543 and 1555 editions by Andreas Vesalius( Book )

111 editions published between 1542 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This title recreates the masterpiece of science and art for the first time in a way that is understandable to 21st century readers who do not have any knowledge of Latin. The texts of both the 1543 and the 1555 editions have been translated with the utmost care by Northwestern University Professors Emeritus Daniel H. Garrison and Malcolm H. Hast, a task they completed in over 20 years of painstaking and dedicated work. Annotations give the reader keen insight into just how innovative 'De humani corporis fabrica' was, and high-resolution digital scans of the almost 300 woodcuts provide the images with a sharpness they never had before
Compendiosa totius anatomie delineatio by Thomas Geminus( Book )

44 editions published between 1545 and 1559 in Latin and English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Geminus, whose family name was Lambert or Lambrit, emigrated to England about 1540, where he practiced the arts of engraving, printing and instrument making, and also served (despite his lack of formal training) as royal physician to Henry VIII. He introduced to the English the use of copperplate engraving for book illustration, a technique he probably brought with him from his native Belgium. A few months before the publication of the Compendiosa, Geminus produced the first engraved book illustrations published in England: two small copperplates, also copied from Vesalius, made for Thomas Raynalde's 1545 revision of The Byrth of Mankynde. The Compendiosa, with its forty copperplates, was the second English book illustrated with copperplates, and the first to contain an engraved title-page, which has been called the first engraving of any artistic importance produced in England.--J. Norman, 2006

"In this work on the discovery and therapeutic use of the china root in the treatment of syphilis, Vesalius described the first attempt to formulate methods of identification of an exotic drug. He also offered physicians an opportunity to determine whether or not a drug coming into common use might be adulterated. The work contains Vesalius's defense of his anatomical methods and doctrines as described in the Fabrica (No. 375), as well as important autobiographical data."--Garrison & Morton (1991)
