"On the Anatomy of the Breast," Sir Astley Paston Cooper, 1840
If you have not already, check out BibliOdyssey's great recent post, lavishly illustrated, on Sir Astley Paston's Cooper's On the Anatomy of the Breast, published in 1840. Above images taken from that post, and depicting, from top down, The Nipple in its Changes, Ducts and Glandules, and Arteries and Veins.
To see many more images, and learn more about the book, visit the BibliOdyssey post here. To visit a digitized copy of the book, visit the Thomas Jefferson University Digital Commons here.
P.S. If that top image gave you a sense of Morbid Anatomy déjà vu, there is good reason; click here to see why.
