Tabulæ Anatomicæ 1714 by Batholomaeus Eustachius


Two versions of the Tabulæ Anatomicæ 1714 by Batholomaeus Eustachius are available on Ebay.

From Wikipedia:
First published in 1714 by G. M. Lancisi, and again in 1744 by Cajetan Petrioli, and again in 1744 by Bernhard Siegfried Albinus, and subsequently at Bonn in 1790, the engravings show that Eustachius had dissected with the greatest care and diligence, and taken the utmost pains to give just views of the shape, size and relative position of the organs of the human body. The fact that his book became a bestseller more than a century after his death shows the extent of the religious restrictions on anatomists all through the Renaissance.
