Anatomical fugitive sheet

Anatomical fugitive sheets are illustrations of the human body specially created to display internal organs and structures. Hinged flaps enable the viewer to see a body, they became popular as instructional aids. The parts were labelled, making it easier for lay students to understand the workings of the human body; the earliest known examples of these sheets were published in Strasbourg by the engraver and printer Heinrich Vogtherr in 1538, existed in great numbers although few have survived. Jean Ruel, a French botanist and physician, published his own anatomical sheets in 1539. Andreas Vesalius published his anatomical work on the human body, "De humani corporis fabrica", four years in 1543, his "Tabulae anatomicae sex" had appeared in 1538 showing skeletons and viscera, differ from the Ruel plates. Thomas Geminus, a pseudonym for Thomas Lambrit, was another engraver and printer, who copied the anatomical drawings of Vesalius, a practice which infuriated him into denouncing'extremely inept imitators'.

Geminus did however redraw and rearrange Vesalius' woodcut illustrations, choosing to use engraved copperplates, with which he was more familiar. Gyles Godet, a French printer/publisher, worked in London from the end of the 1540s until his death in the 1570s, he made use of Vesalius' diagrams, though crediting the Flemish anatomist. A letter in the British National Archives is from Edmund Bonner, the English ambassador at the court of Francis I in Paris and future bishop of London, he wrote to Arthur Plantagenet, deputy of Calais, in 1539 sending him a gift of Ruel's woodcuts of a man and women. The fugitive sheet practice is one, used at various times in the 1800s: such as Edward William Tuson's "A supplement to myology", Gustave Joseph Witkowski's "Anatomie iconoclastique" and Étienne Rabaud's "Anatomie élémentaire du corps humain". More Jonathan Miller's pop-up book "The human body", employed the same principle. Medical illustrator Wellcome image sequence Ars Anatomica British Museum
