This talk will discuss how Andreas Vesalius increased access to human anatomy with the publication of "De Humani Corporis Fabrica Libri Septem" in 1543. By painstakingly designing his illustrations and the corresponding text to accurately represent what he had observed during actual dissections, Vesalius intended his magnum opus to serve as a textual supplement for live demonstrations in the anatomy theater.
