Anatomy: "L'Anatomie de L'Homme" by Bourgery and Jacob -1837/1843

Anatomical plate: "L'Anatomie de L'Homme" by Dr Bourgery and draughtsman Jacob -1837/1843

The plates are taken from the monumental work of Dr Bourgery who occupied there the last 15 years of his life to realize it: Complete treatise of the anatomy of man, including surgical anatomy and surgical medicine.
Unanimously recognized for the finesse of his drawings by the Professor of anatomical drawing Jacob, pupil of the famous painter of the Revolution, David.

These plates were printed in lithograph by Imprimerie Lemercier, Benard et Cie in Paris, which allows us to know that they were printed between 1837 (year of association between Lemercier and Benard) and 1843 (dissolution of this association).

Our boards are all taken from Volume 6 .
