Overview

This book is dedicated to the 500th anniversary of the birth of Andreas Vesalius (1514-1564). Experts focus on Vesalius's life and work, the new insights he gave into the anatomy of the human body, and the influence he had on the medical profession throughout the centuries. Special attention is given to the iconography in Vesalius's Fabrica and Epitome, which, as a new medium of expression, has incited doctors and artists alike to copy the magnificent renaissance drawings. With a renewed interest in Andreas Vesalius's texts and drawings, illustrations are included in the book. [Subject: Medical History, Art History, Human Anatomy]
