QM21 .V418 "Andreae Vesalii Bruxellensis, Scholae Medicorum Patauinae Professoris, De humani corporis fabrica libri septem."
"Vesalius, Andreas, 1504-1564"

.

Andreas Vesalius, 1504-1564. De Humani Corporis Fabrica libri septem. Basileae ; ex officina Ioannis Oporini, 1543. Illustrated title-page, initials, printers device on verso [leaf 17], three full page skeletal figures; 18 full page muscle, vein and nerve figures, large portrait of author, 182 smaller wood cuts.

The years 1542 to 1543 saw the printing of three most important treatises: the Fabrica of Vesalius, the Revolutionibus of Copernicus and the Stirpium of Fuchs, and thereby established a date considered as the beginning of modern science. Vesalius, then 28, derived accurate information of the body's structure and the function of its parts from actual dissections done at Padua.
