Gray's Anatomy

The images are from the original Gray’s Anatomy and are drawn by H.V.Carter M.D. There is something about these beautiful engravings that leaves its more modern 3D-rendered bethren wanting. 150 years after it first came out, Gray's is still considered a bible in the world of medicine.

While its original author, Henry Gray, has been immortalised, the name of its illustrator, Henry Vandyke Carter, has largely been forgotten. This could well be due to the fact that the current 40th edition no longer retains any of Gray's text or Carter's drawings.
