Atlas of Topographic Anatomy, 1911Eugène-Louis Doyen with J.-P. Bouchon and R. Doyen; heliotypes by E. Le Deley 

This amazing book is filled with photographs of human bodies that had been scientifically mummified and then sawed into slices to reveal the anatomy within. The process, which Parisian surgeon Eugène-Louis Doyen dubbed megatomy, was a radical departure from existing anatomical studies. His work was a precursor to today’s popular Body Worlds exhibitions of plastinated slices of human cadavers, though Doyen’s attempts to publicly present images of his anatomical slices were met with protests.
