Synopsis: Anatomically correct: Bourgery's monumental and unsurpassed treatise   We owe a great debt to Jean Baptiste Marc Bourgery (1797–1849) for his Atlas of Anatomy, which was not only a massive event in medical history, but also remains one of the most comprehensive and beautifully illustrated anatomical treatises ever published in any language. In 1830, having received his doctorate in medicine three years prior, Bourgery began work on his magnificent atlas in cooperation with illustrator Nicolas Henri Jacob (1782–1871), a student of the French painter Jacques Louis David. The first volumes were published the following year, but completion of the treatise required nearly two decades of dedication; Bourgery lived just long enough to finish his labor of love, but the last of the treatise’s eight volumes was not published in its entirety until five years after his death.

The four parts of Bourgery’s treatise cover descriptive anatomy, surgical anatomy and techniques (exploring in detail nearly all the major operations that were performed during the first half of the 19th century), general anatomy and embryology, and microscopic anatomy. Jacob’s spectacular hand-colored, life-size lithographs are remarkable for their clarity, color, and aesthetic appeal, reflecting a combination of direct laboratory observation and illustrative research; the images are to this day unsurpassed in anatomical illustration.   Text in English, French, and German

About the Author: Jean-Marie Le Minor has been assistant professor of anatomy at the Louis Pasteur University in Strasbourg since 1990, radiologist at the University Hospitals in Strasbourg, member of the governing board of the Société Française d’Histoire de la Médecine, Laureate of the Académie Nationale de Médecine (Paris, 2003), and officer of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (French Ministry of Culture).

Verlagsfrisch New copy SOFORT LIEFERBAR - IMMEDIATELY AVAILABLE !!! Bourgery. Atlas of Human Anatomy and Surgery 2 vols. Jean-Marie Le Minor, Henri Sick Hardcover, 2 Bände im Schuber, 24 x 33,5 cm, 722 Seiten ISBN 978-3-8365-3106-1 Mehrsprachige Ausgabe: Deutsch, Englisch, Französisch Anatomisch korrekt Bourgerys unerreichtes Meisterwerk Der Anatomie-Atlas von Jean Marc Bourgery (1797-1849) stellt nicht nur ein bedeutendes Ereignis in der Medizingeschichte dar, er gehört auch zu den reichhaltigsten und schönsten Anatomie-Abhandlungen aller Zeiten. Im Jahr 1830, drei Jahre nachdem Bourgery seinen Doktortitel erhalten hatte, nahm er gemeinsam mit dem Illustrator Nicolas Henri Jacob (1782-1871) die Arbeit an diesem prächtigen Atlas des menschlichen Körpers auf. Die ersten Bände wurden im darauf folgenden Jahr veröffentlicht, doch die Vollendung des Traktats nahm beinahe zwei arbeitsintensive Jahrzehnte in Anspruch. Bourgery hat sein Herzensprojekt gerade rechtzeitig vor seinem Tod fertig gestellt, wobei der letzte der acht Bände erst fünf Jahre später komplett veröffentlicht wurde. Die vier Teile von Bourgerys Traktat behandeln die deskriptive Anatomie, chirurgische Anatomie und Techniken (mit detaillierter Beschreibung fast aller großen Operationen, die in der ersten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts möglich waren), allgemeine Anatomie und Embryologie sowie mikroskopische Anatomie. Begleitet werden die Texte durch Jacobs von Hand kolorierte Lithographien, an denen die Klarheit der Darstellung wie der ästhetische Gesamteindruck faszinieren. Die Bilder, die häufig bei direkter Beobachtung im Labor entstanden, sind in der Geschichte der anatomischen Illustration bis heute unerreicht. Die Autoren: Jean-Marie Le Minor ist seit 1990 Assistenzprofessor für Anatomie an der Straßburger Universität Louis Pasteur und Radiologe am Universitätsklinikum Straßburg. Er ist Vorstandsmitglied der Société Française d'Histoire de la Médecine, Laureat der Académie Nationale de Médecine (Paris, 2003) und Mitglied des Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (französisches Kulturministerium). Er verfasste mehrere Geschichtsbücher sowie zahlreiche wissenschaftliche und historische Artikel. Henri Sick war von 1972 bis 2003 Professor für Anatomie an der Straßburger Universität Louis Pasteur und von 1994 bis 2003 Direktor des Institute of Normal Anatomy in Straßburg. Er ist Mitglied des Ordre des Palmes Académiques (französisches Bildungsministerium) und Autor von mehreren Büchern über Schnittanatomie sowie von zahlreichen Wissenschaftsartikeln. Buch.
