    Lightbulb Amazing historical anatomy reference library!

    You need to check this out.

    I was given the link over on Polycount, and I've checked the CA Wiki here, it's not mentioned, so I thought I'd give it some exposure.

    The National Library of Medicine's Historical Anatomies

    I'm sure many of you will enjoy browsing and saving these images for reference and inspiration.

    I particularly like Albinus, Cheselden and Sarlandiere's work.
    It's a goldmine though.

    Enjoy

    Thanks 4 sharing.

    Albinus is useful - especially for his layered diagrams.

    Pecks the best tho. By a million miles.

    They work, just the second two don't put the topic at the top of the site because the site ends too early. But for anyone with at least two brain cells it should not be hard to find.

    Thanks Mario (and MoP). I only ask because it's the second time in a week someone has announced a link posted there since April.

    briggsy@ashtons: Ah... well, I did check out the Wiki before posting, but I was expecting to find it under the anatomy reference links section.

    I guess if I'd dug around a bit longer, I'd have found it - as it stands, I added the direct link to the Anatomy reference section anyway, just so people can find it more easily.

    Not your fault MoP, the organization of the wiki links obviously leaves something to be desired at the moment. I originally posted the Anatomy, Art History, and Art Instruction sections in what at the time was THE "Links" section, but this has very recently been broken up (by One Much Greater Than I), and my three contributions were placed in a separate page of "Inspiration/helpful links". I had previously added a link on the Figure Reference page to the "my" anatomy section, but that link seems to have disappeared in the same reorganization.

    While I was pleased to see my contributions designated as either helpful or inspirational at such exalted levels, your experience confirms my own thought that it would be clearer if the three components were listed separately on the welcome page. I'll try that out when I get a moment, but obviously the guys who created the whole thing have the last say.
