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 1883 “Pick” edition is quite rare, as editions printed by the Lea Brothers are still very desirable to doctors and medical students today. An invaluable resource, this work was a critical component to the explosion of medical advancement in the early 20th-century, thus leading to dozens more editions being printed! Thomas Pickering Pick, British surgeon and author was 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.”
