Caption: Bernhard Siegfried Albinus (1697-1770), Dutch anatomist. Albinus was the son of German physician Bernhardus Albinus, and when his father took up a position at Leiden University he began his studies there aged 12. He then studied in Paris, specialising in anatomy and botany. He was then appointed lecturer at Leiden in anatomy and surgery. In 1721, he succeeded his father to the professorships. His anatomy lessons became famous across Europe. His magnum opus was the anatomical atlas 'Tabulae sceleti et musculorum corporis humani' (1747). This engraving by William Holl is after Dutch painter Carel Isaak de Moor (1695-1751).
