Wound Man And Other Illustrations From Pseudo-Galen, Anatomia (14th Century)

These are anatomical illustrations from the 15th Century English medical treatise Pseudo-Galen, Anatomia, the title a tribute to the work of Greek physician Claudius Galenus (AD 129  – 216). The pick of the pictures has to be Wound Man, an unlucky cove who has been impaled, knifed, gouged, bludgeoned and pretty much perforated. Look out for the baby in the womb, who appears to be vogueing.
