Book Description National Institutes of Health, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Brand new. Softcover. Good binding and cover. Clean, unmarked pages. In antiquity, the human body's internal structure was subject to speculation, fantasy, and some study, but there were few efforts to represent it in pictures. The invention of the printing press in the 15th century helped to inspire a new spectacular science of anatomy and equally spectacular visions of the body. Dream Anatomy, a lavishly illustrated new publication from the National Library of Medicine, is filled with the anatomical imagery made possible by the printing press, ranging from the detailed and informative to the beautiful, whimsical, surreal, and grotesque. This new catalogue, based on the National Library of Medicine's milestone Dream Anatomy exhibition, displays the anatomical imagination in some of its most astonishing incarnations, from the fourteenth century to present. xii, 180 pages : illustrations, portraits ; 26 cm.Contents: Foreword --Preface --About the National Library of Medicine --Dream anatomies and the great divide: art, science, and the changing conventions of anatomical representation, 1500-present --Anatomy is us --Playing with death : fun with science --Getting real : the new aesthetics of scientific illustration --Our cadavers, ourselves, or the return of the anatomical repressed --Notes --Revisiting dream anatomy --Anatomical dream time : the early modern era --Getting real : removing metaphor and fancy from anatomy --Visionary and visible : dreaming anatomy in modernity --History of anatomy timeline --Print technologies of anatomical illustration --Exhibition checklist --Further reading --Credits and acknowledgements.
