These color lithographs illustrating amputation are from Jean Marc Bourgery’s monumental Traité complet de l’anatomie de l’homme.  This work was originally published in eight volumes over the course of twenty-three years (1831-1854); Bourgery himself died before it was completed.

The illustrations were done by Nicholas-Henri Jacob, a student of the renowned French Revolution era painter Jacques Louis David.

glimmer by glimmer I deciphered the night.
