Anatomy lesson

Here's a fascinating image kindly sent to me by curator of the Dittrick Medical History Museum, Mr. Gustav Schmitt who is a regular blog visitor and recently travelled all the way from Cleveland Ohio to see me for a chat in the Holborn Library exhibition just a few weeks ago. We had a very interesting talk and he mentioned at the time this rare lithograph from the Libraire Alain Brieux in his collection which seems to depict students studying the anatomy of a Bosci like character. I wonder whether this is my great Uncle Rosci who travelled extensively over Europe and died under mysterious circumstances. It's such a beautiful delicate print and a fine example of the lithographers art.

Images and stories from blog visitors are always most welcome.
