Written in the 1850s when its author was a young doctor, Gray's Anatomy was the most comprehensive and accessible medical textbook of its time. This compact volume comprises an abridged version of the classic 1860 edition - the last to be published during Gray's lifetime - and the masterly wood-block illustrations that ensured the runaway success of the original book.
A national and international treasure, Gray's Anatomy is essential reading for anyone with an interest in the history of medicine or in the amazingly complex machine that is the human body.
