Item Information

Title:
Warren's handbook of anatomy
Description:
The lineal descendant of John Warren and John Collins Warren, John Warren (1874-1928) received a degree from the Medical School in 1900; he became a professor of anatomy at Harvard and was noted for his dissection work. During the last years of his life, Warren made over 400 preparations as teaching illustrations and commissioned artist Hamlet Frederick Aitken to reproduce them for a projected topographical atlas and handbook for dissection. At Warren's death, the preparations and illustrations were bequeathed to the Department of Anatomy. Robert Montraville Green (1880-1955) provided descriptive text and saw the project through to publication. This copy of Warren's handbook belonged to Green and contains some of his emendations.
