Summary This title recreates the masterpiece of science and art for the first time in a way that is understandable to 21st century readers who do not have any knowledge of Latin. The texts of both the 1543 and the 1555 editions have been translated with the utmost care by Northwestern University Professors Emeritus Daniel H. Garrison and Malcolm H. Hast, a task they completed in over 20 years of painstaking and dedicated work. Annotations give the reader keen insight into just how innovative 'De humani corporis fabrica' was, and high-resolution digital scans of the almost 300 woodcuts provide the images with a sharpness they never had before.
