From the Publisher:

The fifth and final volume of Richardson and Carman's award-winning translation contains fifteen chapters on the heart and respiratory organs and eighteen chapters on the brain and sense organs, plus a final chapter on vivisection. The volume concludes with a series of indexes, to the fifth volume and the complete set, which will greatly add to the usefulness of the translation. These include Dr. Richardson's translation of Vesalius's original index to the Fabrica, which represents Vesalius's outline of key discoveries and ideas in the Fabrica, and a set of cumulative indexes to all five volumes of On the Fabric of the Human Body.

First published in 1543, Vesalius's De humani corporis fabrica libri septem inaugurated the modern study of anatomy, leading to the eventual overturn of the Galenic system that had dominated medical science for fourteen centuries. Although many editions, revisions, adaptations, and facsimiles of this work appeared over the centuries, remarkably it has never before now been translated (except for fragments) into a modern language other than Russian (Moscow, 1950-1954). The Richardson and Carman translation supplies a modern, accessible version of this monumental work for the first time.
