Bourgery, Marc Jean, 1797-1849
2 v. + 6 v. of atlases; 43 x 32 cm
The compilation of Bourgery's Anatomie was encouraged by the great Cuvier. It was issued in eight volumes between 1831 and 1854, and re-issued 1866-1871 with additional plates and revised text. The work covered the whole of anatomy, beginning with a volume on surgical anatomy, and ending with a volume on embryology and microscopic anatomy. A number of other eminent medical men, including Claude Bernard and Ludovic Hirschfeld, also contributed to the work. The drawings were made by Nicolas-Henri Jacob (1782-1871), transferred to the lithographic stone by Mme. C.A. Jacob Hublier and others, and lithographed by Bénard & Frey, and Lemercier.
