Bourgery. Atlas of Human Anatomy and Surgery


Anatomically Correct

An unsurpassed treatise of the human body

We owe a great debt to Jean Baptiste Marc Bourgery (1797–1849) for his Atlas of Anatomy, which was not only a massive event in medical history, but also remains one of the most comprehensive and beautifully illustrated anatomical treatises ever published.

Bourgery began work on his magnificent atlas in 1830 in cooperation with illustrator Nicolas Henri Jacob (1782–1871), a student of the French painter Jacques 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 cover descriptive 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 and embryology, and microscopic anatomy. Jacob’s spectacular hand-colored lithographs are remarkable for their clarity, color, and aesthetic appeal, reflecting a combination of direct laboratory observation and illustrative 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 the workings and wonder of the human body.

Informative and artistic

Denise,1 novembre 2021
A fine and complete work that explains in detail how human beings are made. The illustrations are clear and precise, the descriptions too. This book can be considered not only an informative text but also a real artistic product.

Interesting and educational book

Joost,27 ottobre 2021
This book is very big and beautiful. The pages are thick and the quality is absolutely what you expect from TASCHEN. I have a lot of books from TASCHEN and I love them all. I love the bigger books and this one definitely don't disappoint you in the size. Is thick and big. Much buy! Is a little big for coffee table book but if you have bigger table it can fit.

A nice piece of medecine history

A great book of anatomy with awesome drawings of our human body.

A Fantastic Revival of History

Howard,27 ottobre 2021
I'm very fond of early medical history. I'm always awed by the pioneering vision of the early surgeons, and by their quest to help people in a raw, brutal period of medical history. And this book captures that spirit perfectly. It demonstrates both the grisliness of antique surgery, and the tenderness and mercy sought by its practitioners. It's a beautiful reference book, and a remarkable piece of history.

Very good
