Overview
Anatomically correct: An unsurpassed treatise of the human body We owe a great debt toJean Baptiste Marc Bourgery(1797 1849) for hisAtlas of Anatomy, which was not only a massive event in medical history, but also remains one of the mostcomprehensive and beautifully illustrated anatomical treatises ever published.

Bourgery began work on his magnificent atlas in 1830 in cooperation with illustratorNicolas Henri Jacob(1782 1871), a student of the French painterJacques Louis David. The first volumes were published the following year, but completion of the treatise required nearly two decades of dedication; Bourgery lived just long enough to finish his labor of love, but the last of the treatise s eight volumes was not published in its entirety until five years after his death.

The eight volumes of Bourgery s treatise coverdescriptive anatomy, surgical anatomy and techniques(exploring in detail nearly all the major operations that were performed during the first half of the 19th century), general anatomy andembryology, andmicroscopic anatomy. Jacob s spectacular hand-colored, life-size lithographs are remarkable for their clarity, color, and aesthetic appeal, reflecting a combination ofdirect laboratory observationandillustrative research. Unsurpassed to this day, the images offer exceptional anatomical insight, not only for those in the medical field but also for artists, students, and anyone interested in theworkings and wonder of the human body.
