The Milwaukee Academy of Medicine has a collection of rare books of medical significance.
Horace Manchester Brown Collection
A recently published English translation of two volumes has been purchased by the Academy. On the Fabric of the Human Body Book I deals with the Bones and Cartilages; Book II deals with the Ligaments and Muscles. The translators are William Frank Richardson and John Burd Carman. The translation is eminently readable and illustrates Vesalius' genius in describing the details of his dissections. View the Horace Manchester Brown Collection
