From Charles Etienne, "De dissectione partium corporis humani libri tres", woodcut, Paris, 1545.

This book actually precedes Vesalius' De Humani corporis fabrica, but its printing was postponed due to a lawsuit in 1539. The purely anatomical part of the image, the section, is probably the work of surgeon and barber Estienne de la Rivière.
