Gray’s Book of Anatomy:
Henry Gray’s scientific, anatomical publication was first published in 1858, and served as a complete assembly of cells and bones. It is packed full of accurate illustration and information, and the beautifully old book gains charm with age.
There is something about browned page and scientific layouts that forces you to believe every word as a fact. It is laid out in a way that allows for enough text to be displayed without being too much of a daunting read, enough space on the page without looking empty, and enough scientific illustration on the page to aid the reader in understanding the complicated, anatomical prose.
