Andreae Vesalii Bruxellensis De humani corporis fabrica libri septem by Andreas Vesalius( Book )

25 editions published between 1543 and 1976 in Latin and Italian and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With De humani corporis fabrica, published when he was only twenty-nine years old, Vesalius revolutionized not only the science of anatomy but how it was taught. Throughout this encyclopedic work on the structure and workings of the human body, Vesalius provided a fuller and more detailed description of human anatomy than any of his predecessors, correcting errors in the traditional anatomical teachings of Galen (which had been obtained from primate rather than human dissection), and arguing that knowledge of human anatomy was to be obtained only from human sources. Even more revolutionary than his criticism of Galen and other medieval authorities was Vesalius's assertion that the dissection of cadavers must be performed by the physician himself-- a direct contradiction of the medieval doctrine that dissection was a task to be performed by menials while the physician lectured from the traditional authorities. Only through actual dissection, Vesalius argued, could the physician learn human anatomy in sufficient detail to be able to teach it accurately. This "hands-on" principle remained Vesalius's most lasting contribution to the teaching of anatomy; it is graphically represented in the Fabrica's woodcut title page (the earliest illustration of an anatomical theatre), which shows Vesalius with his right hand plunged into an opened cadaver, conducting an anatomical demonstration. Because it was then legal only to dissect the cadavers of executed criminals, and these cadavers were always in short supply, Vesalius urged physicians to take their own initiative in obtaining material for dissection. The Fabrica contains several amusing and unrepentant anecdotes of how students had robbed graves to obtain cadavers, especially those of women, since female criminals were rarely executed in those days

Andreae Vesalii Bruxellensis, invictissimi Caroli V. Imperatoris medici, De humani corporis fabrica libri septem by Andreas Vesalius( Book )

10 editions published in 1555 in Latin and Undetermined and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'While the chronology of his life and activities prevented Camerarius from knowing Vesalius, yet as a friend of Falloppius he may well have had a considerable indirect knowledge and interest in the great anatomist. The phrase "son of Joachim" is a reference to the physician's father, Joachim Camerarius, 1500-1574, a celebrated German humanist, friend of Luther and Melanchthon, professor of rhetoric at Tubingen, and later the reorganizer of the University of Leipzig. It is quite possible that the book was a gift from father to son-- certainly a fitting gift to a young medical student-- and the inscription, which is in the hand of the son, would admit of that interpretation. In that case, however, filial regard should have led the younger Camerarius to record the source of the presentation. The second inscription: Harles Dr. Erl., must be that of Johann Christian Friedrich Harless, 1773-1853, of Erlangen, a distinguished physician and medical historian. Unfortunately, there is no indication as to how the book passed from the family of Camerarius to Harless, nor how thereafter it came into the possession of another historian of medicine, Ernst Seidel of Oberspaar, Saxony, whose entire collection, including this volume, was purchased for the Lane Medical Library in 1921." (C.D. O'Malley, Two Association Copies of the Fabrica, J. Hist. Med. 10 (1955) 426-28).--J. Norman, 2006

4 editions published in 1542 in German and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most important anatomical works published before Vesalius. Dryander (also known as Eichmann), a friend of Vesalius, was a professor of surgery at Marburg and one of the first anatomists to prepare illustrations after actual dissections. Some of the woodcuts were previously used in Dryander's Anatomiae (Marburg 1537) and Anatomia capitis humani (Marburg 1536). Others had appeared in the author's edition of Mondino, published the previous year. The two large cuts of the vascular system and the cutaneous veins of the back (on B1r and B2r) are new. The non-anatomical cuts have been attributed to the school of Hans Brosamer. The present work, besides Dryander's detailed treatise on human anatomy, contains descriptions of the virtues of plants, the nature of various foods and beverages, directions for the diagnosis and treatment of disease, including the plague, and instructions for midwifery
