Annual Display of Rare Anatomical Texts is Dec. 20

Annual Display of Rare Anatomical Texts

On Wednesday, Dec. 20, Becker Library’s Archives and Rare Books Division will host the Annual Display of Rare Anatomical Texts from 2 to 5 p.m. in the King Center on the library's seventh floor. The exhibition is a unique opportunity to see a selection of spectacular medical works dating from the Renaissance to the 20th century up close.

Some highlights of the specimens that will be on display include:

  • First and second editions of Andreas Vesalius’ landmark work De humani corporis fabrica, which is credited as being the foundation of modern anatomy
  • Govard Bidloo’s Ontleding des menschelyken lichaams, known for the harsh sense of realism it brought to illustrating the process of dissection
  • Siegfried Albinus’ massive Tabluae sceleti et musculorum corporis humani, with its illustrations of skeletons and skinned musclemen posing against elaborate backgrounds

This event is free and open to the public - all are welcome to attend.
