Most widely held works by Estienne de La Rivière
De dissectione partium corporis humani : libri tres by Charles Estienne( Book )

30 editions published between 1545 and 2004 in Latin and Undetermined and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The anatomical woodcuts in De dissectione have attracted much critical attention due to their wide variation in imagistic quality, the oddly disturbing postures of the figures in Books 2 and 3, the obvious insertion in many blocks (again, in Books 2 and 3) of separately cut pieces for the dissected portions of the anatomy, and the uncertainty surrounding the sources of the images. The presence of inserts in main blocks would suggest that these blocks were originally intended for another purpose, and in fact a link has been established between the gynecological figures in Book 3, with their frankly erotic poses, and the series of prints entitled "The Loves of the Gods," engraved by Gian Giacomo Caraglio after drawings by Perino del Vaga and Rosso Fiorentino. (It has also been conjectured that the male figures in Book 2 are from blocks cut for an unpublished book of anatomical designs after Rosso Fiorentino's studies of bodies disinterred from the burial grounds at Borgo; however, this speculation remains insufficiently supported by evidence.)
