Anatomia Carpi. Isagoge breves perlucide ac uberime, in Anatomiam humani corporis...

Bologna, 1535. Woodcut. National Library of Medicine.

Jacopo Berengario da Carpi

Berengario, an Italian surgeon and physician, refashioned the 14th-century anatomical treatise of Mondino de’Liuzzi for print publication. The illustrations give little anatomical detail, but visually represent the sense of wonder that attends the opening of the body.
