Engraving / etching on verge type hand laid paper with watermark. Description: This old antique medical anatomy print originates from Andreas Vesalius collected works: "Opera omnia anatomica & chirurgica", edited by Ed. H. Boerhaave (1668-1738) & B.S. Albinus (1697-1770), Leiden, published by J. du Vivie and J. & H. Verbeek, 1725. This work is appreciated for its beauty and careful preparation in which the human figures which are placed in classical poses and landscapes, while the display of the structures are based on Vesalius' direct observations during five years of dissection at Padua. Its contemporary impact was enormous. It was almost instantly relegated to history and the way was open for the development of modern medicine.
