University of Toronto Libraries announce the launch of Anatomia 1522-1867: Anatomical Plates from the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library. It features examples of early anatomical illustrations from the Library’s Hannah and Academy of Medicine collections.

The site displays approximately 4,500 images published between 1522 and 1867. Each illustration has been fully described and indexed using MeSH (MEDLINE’s subject headings). The site includes high-resolution scans of each illustration delivered with image streaming software which allows close examination of the illustration techniques used. The graphical interface Picture your search allows users to pinpoint areas of interest using a layered anatomical figure.

This site will be of interest to medical historians, illustrators, and anyone studying the history of art or graphic technique. It is located at http://digital.library.utoronto.ca/anatomia/.

Discovery and Early Development of Insulin

Another recent addition to UTL digital collections of interest to the medical historian is the recently launched Discovery and Early Development of Insulin, 1920-1925, at http://digital.library.utoronto.ca/insulin/.
