Source

Thesaurus Anatomicus, a 10-part work first published from 1701 to 1716, is a catalog of Frederik Ruysch's unusual anatomical collection. Illustrated with over 40 plates, engraved by Joseph Mulder and Cornelis Huyberts, Ruysch's collection contains odd assemblages of primarily human anatomical specimens, some of which he composed with the help of his daughter, the painter, Rachel Ruysch. In addition to the curiosities that he contributed to the science of anatomy, Ruysch also advanced techniques in dissection and embalming.
