Originally published in 1946, this volume contains the complete text of the Tabulae anatomicae sex (1538) by Vesalius, together with a detailed analysis of its significance by Charles Singer and C. Rabin. This analysis provides a wealth of information on Vesalius and contextualizes his achievements in terms of the contemporary context, numerous illustrations from other anatomical documents are also included. The reader is thus given an insight into the importance of the Tabulae, both for the development of anatomy and the creation of a modern scientific method. This is a well-presented edition of an important text that will be of value to anyone with an interest in anatomy, the Renaissance, or the history of science.
