Content : Made up of the Latin text of Vesalius's Epitome together with some portions of his longer work, and illustrated with a set of plates engraved on copper by Geminus himself. These are moderately skilful copies of nearly all the woodcuts [from drawings by the painter Johannes van Calcar] in Vesalius's original book together with a few reduced from those larger and finer cuts which had been collected in the Epitome ... Vesalius ... complained bitterly, not of the piracy of his text ... but of the injustice done to his illustrations by want of knowledge and accuracy in the copyist ...
