This is an 1886 edition of Levi W. Yaggy’s important anatomical study. This large folio, intended for the instruction of human anatomy, contains large life-size charts or ‘manikins’ featuring the human anatomy, which include the skeleton, muscles, arms and legs, nervous system, arteries and veins, internal organs, ear, eye and head, etc.
The back of the front covers contains a three-panel fold out diagram of the human torso. The chart of the human torso, eye, ear, head and the upper and lower extremities include several pull out and fold out sections and overlays that represent the anatomical layers i.e. the construction of the internal organs, and the construction of the eye, ear and head respectively. Some of the charts of the internal organs depict the harmful effects of alcohol and narcotics.
Issued and patented in 1866, Yaggy’s Anatomical Study was published by the Western Publishing House of Chicago and was considered a publishing landmark for its use of pop-ups.
