Celebrating a Pocket-Size Cerebri Anatome by Thomas Willis at 350 Years Old: Illustrations from Becker Library’s 1666 Edition

A little over 350 years ago, Thomas Willis of Oxford, England published Cerebri Anatome (Figure 1), which would go on to become highly cited by scholars. This work on the anatomy of the brain as a vehicle for viewing the soul or mind of the creator contains several scientific firsts. One is the first appearance of the term neurology1 and another is the first illustration of the Circle of Willis or Willis' Circle,2 an arterial circle at the base of the brain, by which "full circulation to all parts of the brain can be maintained even when the carotid or vertebral arteries are blocked."3

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them at Becker Library

If you’re a Harry Potter fan, you’re probably aware that the Potterverse is about to expand with the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. This new film follows the adventures of Newt Scamander, the wizard who authored the textbook Harry and his fellow Hogwarts students used in their Care of Magical Creatures class. While we Muggles (or No-Majs, as we’re called in North America) are unlikely to encounter any hippogriffs, acromantulas, and grindylows in person, if you venture up to Becker’s Archives and Rare Books you can see them in some of our historical texts!
