Although in some ways not as sophisticatedas the oldschool methods - here's a more hightech version of anatomical representation: Visible Human Project® Gallery

Very basically - they've sliced up a frozen body and scanned each slice. Don't miss this movie.

Another nice gallery:cross-sectional anatomy - including nice movies of the hart.

Lovely images! But let's not forget the animals...

I seem to recall that someone is particularly fond of armadillos- here's what's under their beautiful shells (except for the taxidermied, of course!)

...and a very endearing turtle...

Oooooh, my dear dear Madame Naturalia.

I realised the other day that I never properly bid you welcome to this forum.

Well, I'm terribly embarrassed and deeply sorry for this and I'm taking this occasion to thank you kindly for your enchanting contributions to this forum. hug

To get back to our topic:

I recently stumbled upon a nice little image, article & link collection by the amazing BibliOdyssey on "Historical Anatomies".

Thank you Madame- and a deep curtsy back to you. For a moment, I was fretful that I might have forgotten a secret handshake of some sorts...Wink

I am over the moon seeing the William Cheselden images! Those will quite come in handy!

I had thought to post this link to my favorite museum in Florence, MUSEO LA SPECOLA...http://www.thanatos.it/cultura/musei/museo_laspecola_01.htm


...and then I realized that you had previously posted a much more comprehensive site about the same... http://www.specola.unifi.it/cere/default-e.htm.
Ah, but that's why I'm here! Thanks, as always for the marvelous resource that this site is.

(P.S. Much obliged for earlier posting of kind words and link to my updated site!)

Every once in a while, the rather lazy LJ community HumanDress / Anatomiae posts something worth seeing:

Heidi Taillefer



... and...

Books Bound in Human Skin; Lampshade Myth?

Quote
On a daytrip to Providence during fly-out week, I stumbled across an unusual and startling artifact on display at Brown University's John Hay Library - an anatomy book bound in human skin. While such specimens are unusual, they are not as rare as you might think. Many older libraries and rare book collectors, including several at Harvard and in the Boston area, have an almost-literal skeleton in the closet: anthropodermic bibliopegy, the technical term for books bound in human skin.

How creepy do you have to be?
...to put your dead pet's skeleton on display. We don't like to pass judgement (not the Christian thing to do, and all) but if this is in your home, you're weird. Via BoingBoing...who, by the way, are a little fucked up themselves, for calling this a cool work of art.
