Description

With dissections by Henry Gray, lecturer on anatomy, and H. V. Carter, demonstrator of anatomy at Saint George's Hospital, London, Gray's Anatomy quickly became a standard text for medical students. It first appeared in the U.S. in 1859 and became required reading for first-year students at Harvard as early as 1861. The fortieth edition appeared in 2008, 150 years after its first publication.

This copy of the first edition was in the library of Oliver Wendell Holmes.
