Uncut hand-marbled sheet from De Humani Corporis Fabrica

San Francisco: Norman Publishing, 1998. Single uncut sheet, measuring 23 x 17.5 inches, printed with text and anatomical images from De Humani Corporis Fabrica, hand-marbled in blue, yellow, and pink.

Uncut illustrated sheet from William Frank Richardson's 1998 English translation of the first book of Vesalius's 1543 De Humani Corporis Fabrica (On the Fabric of the Human Body), vividly hand-marbled by Richard J. Wolfe. The anatomical images featured are full-length side and rear views of the human skeleton. Publisher Jeremy Norman commissioned these marbled sheets for use as endpapers in the deluxe limited issue of the book. A fine example.
