No man should marry until he has studied anatomy and dissected at least one woman.
– Honoré de Balzac, Physiologie du Mariage 1829
WANT TO ORDER DISSECTION SPECIMENS?
Check out this exhibition of anatomical flap books being held at Duke University in North Carolina.
These stunning and incredibly detailed books have been produced for centuries as both teaching tools and society curiosities. The oldest specimen on display was made in 1530.
The online exhibition is well worth a look and includes videos of the books in action. You can even hear the paper crackle as the pages are turned and the flaps are lifted. Browse the links down the right hand side of the site and keep an eye out for the pregnant ladies in hats and gowns to protect their modesty.
After a number of disruptions, we finally got around to doing some more dissections this week and used YOUR supplies. I just wanted to say “congratulations” on your wonderful product.
These were the “bestest” hearts I have ever seen. The teachers were even impressed (and that usually takes some doing). The kids were thrilled by (in their words) “the dangley bits”.
Thank you again.
