Caption

Table 56. Anatomia humani corporis by Govard Bidloo comprises 105 engraved plates of anatomical drawings by Gerard de Lairesse. With a few exceptions, these are not idealized or diagrammatic representations of the human body, as was typical in early atlases of human anatomy. They are naturalistic drawings of actual cadavers, remarkable for their sensuous portrayal of their subjects. When sales of Bidloo's Anatomia began to flag, the publisher sold the plates to an English surgeon, William Cowper, who rewrote the text in English, replaced Bidloo's name on the title page with his own, and published the book under the title The anatomy of humane bodies in 1698. An international squabble ensued, but Bidloo's claim was never vindicated. The illustrations in Bidloos' work were drawn by Gerard de Lairesse and engraved by Abraham Blooteling and Peter van Gunst.
