Hieronymus Fabricius ab Aquapendente (1537-1619)

Some wonderful images credited to the Italian anatomist and pioneering embryologist Hieronymus Fabricius ab Aquapendente. (This is his latin name--there appears to some fluidity regarding the exactitude of his proper name, as I have seen him listed with the first names Girolamo and Geronimo, and the last names Fabrici, Fabrizio, and Fabricius to name just a few iterations). You can find out more about him here, here, and here.

Wow, haven't come across his work yet. His color palate is great on the head anatomy, especially on the muscles.
