Goldfinger's Human Anatomy for Artist is a comprehensive anatomy reference book. It shows lots of individual parts in drawings and accompanying photos. What's lacking might be whole figure illustrations.

Classic Human Anatomy by Valarie Winslow is pretty good. It shows the essentials that contribute to surface form. For the price, it's well worth the money.

Another reference book you want to check out should be Human Anatomy for Artists by Andras Szunyoghy. Very big and detailed illustrations.

I can't say about Albinus on Anatomy because I don't have that book yet. But I've seen a few pictures before and they look great.

I have to second your opinion on Classic Human Anatomy by Valarie Winslow

I have this book and it is really really good. I can't stress that enough. It goes through the skull, torso, arms, hands, legs, and feet picking out the bones as well as showing its structure in front, back and side view in skeletal and muscular forms.

Figure Drawing Books

I didn't see that anyone had posted this, so I thought I would mention that if you are doing Figure Drawing, the book Figure Drawing: Design and Invention by Michael Hampton is an excellent resource, works like a class, and is much used by many in the illustration/concept art industry. It goes into gesture drawing and drawing the figure and is also works through analytical figure drawing which deals with the actual breakdown of anatomy within the figure.

I have also found the Force series by Mike Mattesi a great resource for animating and concept art, though the style is admittedly looser and less anatomical.
