Andreae Vesalii Bruxellensis, invictissimi Caroli V. Imperatoris medici, De humani corporis fabrica libri septem by Andreas Vesalius( Book )

13 editions published in 1555 in Latin and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1555 edition of Vesalius' Fabrica contains Vesalius's final revisions of the text, along with significant typographical improvements and refinements. The printer, Oporinus, set the second folio edition in larger type (forty-nine instead of fifty-seven lines per page), which required recutting of all the small initial letters so that they could fit seven lines of the new type. Oporinus also used heavier and finer paper for the second edition, and improved the presswork so that the second edition is a superior example of bookmaking. Why Oporinus substituted an obviously inferior recutting of the masterful woodcut frontispiece, originally used in the 1543 edition, remains one of the many unsolved mysteries associated with the publication of this work

The second modern Latin version of the Bible. Sante Pagnini, Catholic Hebraist, issued the first in 1528. A particular mark of this translation is its use of classical Latin substitutes for more commonly recognized ecclesiastical terms (i.e. fanum for templum)
The fabric of the human body : an annotated translation of the 1543 and 1555 editions by Andreas Vesalius( Book )

14 editions published between 1543 and 1555 in Latin and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Fabrica's magnificent title page and the spectacular series of more than two hundred anatomical woodcuts (full-page and smaller) spread throughout the book remain the most famous series of anatomical illustrations ever published. Because Vesalius published no clues as to their authorship, and no manuscripts, archives, or demonstrably authentic original drawings for the work exist, the source of the woodcuts has always excited the curiosity and speculation of art historians, historians of medicine, and bibliographers. A contemporary reference in Vasari's Lives of the Painter's is probably the source of the traditional attribution the woodcuts to a Flemish associate of Titian, Jan Stephen van Calcar (ca. 1499-1546/50) who drew and possibly engraved the three woodcuts of skeletons in Vesalius's first series of anatomical charts, Tabulae anatomicae sex (1538). Calcar is the only named artist definitely known to have worked with Vesalius. Nevertheless there is no reliable basis for attributing the illustration in the Fabrica to him or any other particular artist. Since we lack any evidence about them other than their style and the understanding that they were cut in Venice, the Fabrica woodcuts may be attributed to an unknown artist or artists from the school of Titian. Vesalius commissioned the illustrations and supervised their production. It is also quite possible that he personally drew some of the lesser illustrations for the Fabrica, as we know that he made the drawings for the first three of the Tabulae anatomicae sex. The woodblocks for the Fabrica, preserved in Munich until their destruction in World War II, were most certainly cut in Venice
