A history of anatomy: the post-Vesalian era
Doctor Persaud traces the history of one of medicine's oldest branches. He follows the development of human anatomical study from the time of Vesalius up to the early 19th century, when legislation made the practice of human dissection legal. This latest volume spans over three centuries of medical history - a period of spectacular achievements during which many great medical personalities lived, made important anatomical discoveries, and produced impressive treatises in the field of human anatomy. This informative book will appeal to anatomists and historians, physicians and anthropologists, medical artists and philosophers and to anyone interested in the history of human anatomy.
