Over het boek:

This book is dedicated to the 500th anniversary of the birth of Andreas Vesalius (1514-1564).
Vesalius’ experts and adepts focus on his life and work, the new insights he gave on the anatomy of the human body and the influence he had on the medical profession throughout the centuries. Special attention is given to the iconography in Vesalius’ “Fabrica” and “Epitome”, which, as a new medium of expression, has incited doctors and artists alike to copy the magnificent renaissance drawings.
The renewed interest in Vesalius’ texts and drawings is illustrated in this publication.
