This magnificent art book re-creates an extremely rare 1849 guide to anatomy, originally compiled for "artists, painters, and sculptors." Unavailable for more than 150 years, this classic work features 30 plates with 105 highly detailed and finely executed black-and-white lithographs. These realistic and meticulously accurate drawings illustrate form as well as function, offering artists a mastery of anatomy through careful, knowledgeable articulation of the muscles and bones beneath the skin. Each image appears with an identifying caption, and this new edition offers the convenience of a CD-ROM that includes every illustration from the book. In addition to its value as a resource for practicing artists, this beautiful browsing book will captivate anyone who has an interest in the human body.
