The most comprehensive and detailed textbook on human anatomy!

 

Few works go through as many editions as Henry Gray’s ‘Anatomy.’ In 2015, “Gray’s Anatomy” reached its 41st edition, and even still it is “considered to be the most comprehensive and detailed textbook on the subject!” (O’Neal, USATODAY, 2005.) This rare late 19th-century edition is considered exceedingly rare, and editions printed by Lea Brothers are very desirable to doctors and medical students still today. During the early 20th-century, there was a boom in medical understanding and knowledge. This book was a critical component in that boom, thus the reason for dozens more editions being printed! Thomas Pickering Pick, editor, is known chiefly for his edits of the 10th through 14th-editions of this work.

 

According to ‘Heirs of Hippocrates,’

“Gray’s ‘Anatomy’ still remains a standard textbook, and much of the original text and many of the superb anatomical illustrations have been retained throughout the successive editions…[a work that] must be compared to the ‘Fabrica’ of Vesalius.”

This edition features over 450 woodcut engravings. Impressive!
