Historical Anatomies on the Web


#1

Thought you guys might find this interesting. Over at the National Library of Medicine they are scanning various old manuscripts on anatomy. The link is…

http://www.nlm.nih.gov/exhibition/historicalanatomies/browse.html

All images are free to download, as one of the mandates of NLM/NIH is to make medical information available to the public. There are some great images in these old texts. My personal favorite being Vesalius’ De Humani Corporis Fabrica (kind of a no brainer as it’s considered one of the most important books on human anatomy). Enjoy :slight_smile:
