The Evolution of Anatomy Illustrations

For those of you who are interested to get a glimpse of the evolution of images in anatomy books between 1450 and 1800, do visit this site. You can also go ahead and visit the "Historical Anatomies On The Web" hosted by the National Library of Medicine for a full blow.  A word of warning though, some might find the illustrations disturbing, or not safe for work? You decide.

The slide show : Anatomy Lessons thru the Ages (total 10 images) at Scientific American is an alternative choice for the light-hearted.
