Full length Table 8. Ame Bourdon (1636 or 1638, December 21, 1706) was a French physician and anatomist. In 1678, he published his double folio anatomical plates, Nouvelles tables anatomiques. The work consists of 16 individual plates, several of which can be combined to form complete human figures. The plates, which were drawn by Bourdon himself, were created using the etching needle and the burin on copperplate and are signed by the engraver Daniel Le Bossu. The images were labelled with letters and then later described by a small 12mo work, Nouvelle description anatomique de toutes les parties du corps humain, & de leurs usages, which was published in Cambrai in 1679.
