About the Digital Collection
Anatomical fugitive sheets provide an early interactive model for looking inside the human body. These printed illustrations are single sheets, similar to broadsides, that depict the body using layers or flaps that can be lifted to reveal internal organs and other body parts, mimicking what one would find upon dissection. The History of Medicine Collections have a total of ten such anatomical fugitive sheets dating from the early-sixteenth to mid-seventeenth centuries.
