Atlas of Human
Anatomy and Surgery: The Complete Coloured Plates of 1831-1854 by
Baptiste Marc Bourgery (1797–1849) was not only a
massive event in medical history, but also remains one of the most
comprehensive and beautifully illustrated anatomical treatises ever
published in any language.
The four parts of Bourgery's treatise cover descriptive anatomy,
surgical anatomy and techniques (exploring in detail nearly all the
major operations that were performed during the first half of the 19th
century), general anatomy and embryology, and microscopic anatomy.
Jacob's spectacular hand-colored, life-size lithographs are remarkable
for their clarity, color, and aesthetic appeal, reflecting a
combination of direct laboratory observation and illustrative research;
the images are to this day unsurpassed in anatomical illustration.
This trilingual and 2 volumes publication is a must to have.
