Having just just celebrated the 150th anniversary of the original publication of Gray's Anatomy, and with most of us having a bit of time between terms to catch up on our reading, why not check out the story behind this classic?
A book called The Anatomist: A True Story of Gray's Anatomy not only reveals the roots of the classic anatomy text, it tells the personal and fascinating stories of the principle players. We find out, for example, that it wasn't Gray who drew the classic dissection sketches that we've come to love, but rather his fellow anatomist Henry Van Dyke Carter.
