Synopsis: Gray's preface states clearly, This Work is intended to furnish the Student and Practitioner with an accurate view of the Anatomy of the Human Body, and more especially the application of this science to Practical Surgery. Experts agree that subsequent editions have never surpassed the beauty and simplicity of the original, and Henry Gray's clarity of expression. An essential element of the book is the remarkable illustrative work of Henry Vandyke Carter, indisputedly the most talented medical artist of his day. This edition of Gray's Anatomy is a faithful digital facsimile of the 1858 classic first edition, presented in an easy-to-use, large format. The reappearance of the original work will be welcomed by all professionals and non-professionals alike with an interest in the structure and workings of the human body. It is as valid today as the day it was written.
