Caption: Engraving from the first edition of De humani Corporis Fabrica (On the Structure of the Human Body) by Andreas Vesalius published in 1543. The drawing was captioned "A delineation from the side of the bones of the hman body freed from the rest of the parts which they support, and placed in position. It is no clear who drew many of the drawings; some scholars believe Titian may have been involved & certainly Jan van Kalkar & Domenico Campagnola contributed.
