A collection of Edo period Japanese anatomical drawings

Written by

Comments: 2

Pink Tentacle has posted a fascinating collection of anatomical drawings (in color!) from Edo period Japan. I’ll leave the explanations to the far more qualified folks over at Pink Tentacle, but below I’ve posted a few of the more interesting images.

Warning: If drawings of human anatomy in a distinct Japanese style gross you out, these images will gross you out.

Kaishihen (Dissection Notes), 1772

Female dissection, 1800

Yōka Hiroku (Confidential Notes on the Treatment of Skin Growths), 1847

Again, be sure to check out the original post at Pink Tentacle. There are dozens of more images with explanations.
