Grays Anatomy plates (from the 1918 edition of Grays Anatomy)


Henry Gray 1827-1861
Gray, Henry An English surgeon and anatomist, best known for his book on the human anatomy, published in 1858 containing 750 pages and 363 illustrations. Tens of later editions of this book, better known as Grays anatomy, has since been published. The last edition is from 2008, published by Elsevier. He died quite young due to smallpox, which he got when attending to a nephew with that disease.

Henry Gray was really a genius. It is impossible to understand who a young surgeon like him managed to accomplish an anatomic atlas like this - the first in the world and still used over 150 years later.

Here are some anatomic plates (there are over one thousand in the atlas) from the 1918 edition (click on an image to get a magnification):
