THE 1539 ‘VENESECTION LETTER’ OF VESALIUS
A LANDMARK IN MODERN ANATOMY


VESALIUS, Andreas. Epistola, docens venam axillarem dextri cubiti in dolore laterali secandam: & melancholicum succum ex venae portae ramis ad sedem pertinentibus, purgari. . Basle, 1539.

Very rare first edition – illustrated with a full-page anatomical woodcut – of Andreas Vesalius’ (1514-64) groundbreaking ‘Venesection Letter’ (1539), his first fully independent anatomical treatise and a key manifesto signaling the anatomist’s “movement away from traditional and authoritarian anatomy in the direction of independent investigation and judgment” (O’Malley, p. 96).
