An awe-inspiring fusion of science and art, this magnificent single-volume reference features more than 130 ground-breaking anatomical illustrations by history's most brilliant artists. Dramatic and highly studied sketches dating back to the sixteenth through eighteenth centuries, these images by Leonardo da Vinci, Bartolommeo Eustachius, Andreas Vesalius, Bernard Albinus, and Pietro da Cortona have given our modern world an unsurpassed appreciation and understanding of the human body.Meticulous portraits of our amazing flesh-and-blood machinery — many accompanied by the artists' original, handwritten notes — these time-honored renderings offer important glimpses into the human organism, both inside and out. Art lovers, as well as students of science and medicine, will thrill to these classic adaptations of muscles, limbs, skeletons, nervous and respiratory systems, and other perspectives that, centuries later, remain masterworks of anatomical artistry.
