Nerves of the heart

Tabulae Neurologicae, (Pavia, 1794)
Author: SCARPA, Antonio (1752–1832) Artist: Faustino Anderloni

This anatomical atlas in large format is Scarpa’s masterpiece. His life-size drawings were engraved by Faustino Anderloni. It is the first proper delineations of the nerves of the heart executed with the force of a genius and irreproachable accuracy of detail. Each plate took weeks or even months of painstaking work.
