With numerous plates reproducing 16th and 17th century medical illustrations of bodies. "I first came across anatomical fugitive sheets as a doctoral student, at the Apostolic Library in the Vatican. Fascinated and seduced by their unusual appearance, I began to digress from the topic I had been focussing on - the practice of dissection in the Renaissance - and to indulge in gathering some information on those sheets, finding the location of other copies, wondering who had produced them and for whoom they had been intended." - page xiv. "The production and proliferation of anatomical fugitive sheets went along with the rebirth of anatomy in the Renaissance - the period of radical renewal of the late-fifteeneth and early-sixteenth centuries during which modern anatomy arose as a refounded science after centuries of slavish adherence to ancient authorities like Aristotle and Galen." - page 5. ; ('Medical History', Supplement No. 19); 4to
