Book - A Stereoscopic Atlas of Human AnatomyThe Bassett and Gruber Legacy by Robert A. Chase, M.D.NEW - Hardbound - 9 x 9 inches, 192 pages & 12 View-Master ReelsThe Stereoscopic Atlas of Human Anatomy was a ten year project begun in 1952, culminating in 23 separate book volumes, containing a total of 221 View-Master reels of 1547 color dissections of the human body, becoming a widely heralded teaching tool in medical schools around the world and for over 5 decades.
In 1994, this synopsis volume was published as survey journey through this amazing project.
When published, this was the new Stereoscopic Atlas of Human Anatomy containing 84 of the original stereo views on 12 View-Master Reels and the labeled drawings that accompany them. The text and stereo image selection for this new book was done by Robert A. Chase, M.D., of the Anatomy Department of Stanford University (where Bassett and Gruber did all their work). These 84 views are taken from all the body regions, and they represent about 5% of the images in the original Atlas. Viewing these selected images will confirm that the book is still a very comprehensive medical text of great value to doctors, medical students, medical researchers, and anyone else interested in human anatomy.
The hard-cover book contains 192 pages and 12 reels.
