Experts agree that subsequent editions have never surpassed the beauty and simplicity of the original, and Henry Gray's clarity of expression. An essential element of the book is the remarkable illustrative work of Henry Vandyke Carter, indisputedly the most talented medical artist of his day. This edition of Gray's Anatomy is a faithful digital facsimile of the 1858 classic first edition, presented in an easy-to-use, large format. The reappearance of the original work will be welcomed by all professionals and non-professionals alike with an interest in the structure and workings of the human body. It is as valid today as the day it was written.Read Less

Fantastic Anatomy Book
I bought this book with the intention of improving my drawing skills by using it to develop my understanding of the human body. Disappointment is the least of my worries. Thankfully I already have a scientific background and understanding, because if I didn't the language and wordiness would have left me baffled. A brilliant classic!
