Anatomische Tafeln...

Frankfurt, 1656. Copperplate engraving. National Library of Medicine

Giulio Casserio
(ca. 1552-1616)

This clumsy frontispiece features five notable anatomists posed around a cadaver. In the center of the picture, the image of the Earth, with the continent of "America" visible, signifies that the anatomized body is a "New World," and dissection a voyage of discovery.
