Vesalius, Anatomia

19 July 2021

VESALIUS, Andreas. Anatomia: Addita nunc postremo etiamantiquorum anatome. Venice: Giovanni Antonio and Giacomo de’ Franceschis,
1604. 5th Edition.

This edition closely follows the 1568 Francesco de’ Franceschi’s edition and uses the same woodcut blocks by Criegher. It is the fifth edition (the fourth folio edition); the first (with the title De humani corporis fabrica) was published in 1543 in Basel. The volume was probably published as a textbook for students of Fabrizio di Acquapendente, professor of anatomy at Padua.
