Exhibition: J. Willard Marriott Library, Levels 1 – 5

2014 marks the 500th anniversary of the birth of Andreas Vesalius, scientific visionary and pioneer of 16th century medicine. A famous anatomist and physician in his own time (1514-1564), Vesalius is still recognized today for his contributions to understanding human anatomy. Vesalius is particularly noted for his De Humani Corporis Fabrica (Fabric of the Human Body), first published in 1543, and revised and reprinted in 1555. On Level 4 of the Marriott Library, these two editions will be part of a Rare Books exhibition titled Down to the Bones.

The J. Willard Marriott Library, in partnership with the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library, is hosting Vesalius: Celebrating 500 Years of Innovation, celebrating the contributions of Andreas Vesalius to education, anatomy, and design. From July 11 through October 3, the Marriott Library will display rare books, prints, anatomical models, and other materials related to the work of Vesalius throughout the building. Also on display will be facsimile plates from Leonardo da Vinci’s anatomical studies. These exhibitions are free and open to the public. Families and children are welcome
