Atlases of Human Anatomy

An Atlas of Human Anatomy is a book of pictures of all the parts of the human physical body. These books are used by medical students and doctors for study and reference. They are also useful for anyone who works on the human body - physical therapists, massage therapists, bodyworkers, bodybuilders, athletes of all kinds, yoga students, yoga teachers. And of course since we all have bodies, anyone may find these books interesting. There are also textbooks on anatomy, or more commonly, anatomy and physiology (A&P) which explain how the body works. These are also very interesting books. Atlases mainly just have pictures. There are also many atlases which specialize in just some parts of the body.

Atlases of human anatomy can be found in libraries and in larger bookstores. They are usually kind of expensive but used copies can be found more cheaply in used bookstores and on eBay or Amazon. Most of the atlases on eBay will show up if you just search on "atlas anatomy", but you can search "human anatomy" and/or search descriptions and titles and many more books will show up.

There are several major current atlases of human anatomy. These are: Clemente, Grant, Netter, Pernkopf, Sobotta, and the more recent Thieme (which are all illustrated with drawings) and also McMinn and Rohen/Yokochi (which are illustrated with photographs). A detailed listing of these major atlases follows. If you find these books useful, you may want to get more than one, since they are all different. It can even be useful to have different editions of the same atlas. If you are a medical student, it may be useful to get one of the photographic atlases. Most people who will not be disecting cadavers or performing surgery would probably be better off with the non-photographic atlases. Clemente and Netter would probably be the best choices for most people. Sobotta is more expensive (and Clemente uses plates from Sobotta), Pernkopf is not easily obtainable (and is very expensive), and Grant's seems to be a bit less respected than Clemente or Netter (it is definitely a serious atlas, but the illustrations may be a bit less spectacular than those in the other atlases).

There are also many older atlases and lesser known or less important atlases. I'll also list some of these - just kind of a random list of ones I have found out about so far. For a large list of what is currently available, you can search on "human anatomy atlas" at Amazon.com.

I am not a doctor or medical student, I just find these books interesting. In fact, I think these are the most amazing books in the world. If you haven't seen one of these major atlases, go to a library or bookstore and have a look!

The Major Atlases of Human Anatomy
Clemente

Anatomy: A Regional Atlas of the Human Body
Carmine D. Clemente, Ph.D.

With illustrations from Sobotta and (in the 2nd and later editions) from Pernkopf.

Here's the first 2 paragaphs from Clemente's Preface to the first edition:

   "Twenty-five years ago, while a student at the University of Pennsylvania, I marvelled at the clarity, completeness, and boldness of the anatomical illustrations of the original German editions of Professor Johannes Sobotta's Atlas and their excellent three-volume English counterparts, the recent editions of which were authored by the late Professor Frank H. J. Figge. It is a matter of record that before World War II these atlases were the most popular ones consulted by American medical students. In the United States, with the advent of other anatomical atlases, the shortening of courses of anatomy in the medical schools, and the increase in publishing costs, the excellent but larger editions of the Sobotta atlases have become virtually unknown to a full generation of students. During the past twenty years of teaching Gross Anatomy at the University of California at Los Angeles I have found only a handful of students who are familiar with the beautiful and still unexcelled Sobotta illustrations.
   "With this background I enthusiastically accepted the proposal of creating a single-volume atlas from the Sobotta plates and those subsequently drawn by Professor Erich Lepier of Vienna, with the objective of making this teaching resource material once again available to American students, this time at a relatively low cost."

McMinn

Color Atlas of Human Anatomy
R.M.H. McMinn, R.T. Hutchings

This is a photographic atlas. An anatomy teacher (who happens to be my accountant) once told me that McMinn's is good for bones, and I then noticed that many of the bones are depicted from various angles - front, back, left, right, top, bottom.

Here are the first and last paragraphs from the Preface to the first edition:

   "The object of this atlas is to assist undergraduates and postgraduates in the study of human anatomy. Of course, good textbooks and atlases already exist and by colouring arteries red and nerves yellow, for example, they are justly popular as aids to learning. But so often, and especially for newcomers to the subject, the interior of the body seems to look very different from the neat diagrams in the book, and we believe it is helpful to show body strutures as they actually exist in suitably prepared specimens of the kind that students see in the dissecting room and meet in examinations. In this way we hope to bridge the gap between the description of the textbook and the reality of the body.
   "We would like to think that this book may be regarded as something more than just an aid to academic learning and the passing of examinations. The human body is indeed 'fearfully and wonderfully made', and we hope our attempt at exercising some degree of photographic artistry to display the interior of the body will lead to a wider appreciation of the fact that beauty of form is not limited to the exterior."

Prior to the publication of these atlases, Netter's medical illustrations were published in a large set of books known as the CIBA Collection of Medical Illustrations. These volumes were published one at a time over several decades. They include illustrations of all types of disorders and diseases as well as of normal anatomy. The whole set is available as a collection:

These volumes can also be found on used on eBay or Amazon at various prices.


Pernkopf

Atlas of Topographical and Applied Human Anatomy
Eduard Pernkopf

Although this German atlas is often considered to be the finest ever produced, it has become controversial due to its recently discovered Nazi origins. The author was a Nazi and holocaust victims may have been used as specimens and models. I read somewhere that it has been banned from sale in the U.S. I don't know if that is true but it doesn't seem to be easily available.

Here are some links with more info:

Gray's

There are many versions of Gray's Anatomy available. Henry Gray began publishing his Anatomy books in England in the 1800's. A book that is very commonly found in US bookstores is a reprint of an ancient obsolete edition, known as "The Classic Collector's Edition" which is not really an atlas (or a "collector's edition" - you can get it for a quarter at a garage sale) and has just a few black and white line drawings. For some reason this has remained a very popular book and it is what many people think of as Gray's Anatomy (and what many think of as an Atlas of Human Anatomy). I suppose it has some value but it is nothing like the Atlases described above. Here is a page about it at Amazon.com.

Meanwhile, Gray's Anatomy has continued to be revised and published as a very serious text. I do not list it with the other atlases above as I am not familiar with it and I have the impression that it may be a bit more than just an atlas. But probably it belongs in the company of the major atlases listed above. There are British and American editions and the British editions seem to be more respected. Here is some info on the current one:

Vesalius

Andreas Vesalius (1514-1564) published a book in 1543 called De Humani Corporis Fabrica Libri Septem (On the Fabric of the Human Body in Seven Books). The book is in Latin, seven volumes, about 700 pages, with over 200 beautiful illustrations. This is one of the most classic of all medical books and also a classic of Rennaisance graphic art. For this book, Vesalius is considered to be the "father of human anatomy". Some say that modern medicine began with the publication of this book. There is a reproduction of the whole book available on CD-ROM (see below) and it looks like the Norman Publishing Company is working on publishing an English translation of the whole book in several volumes (see below). There are other books containing just the illustrations. The Dover book is widely available and very affordable.
