Gibson, Thomas (1647-1722)
The anatomy of humane bodies epitomized : wherein all the parts of man's body, with their actions and uses, are succinctly described, according to the newest doctrine of the most accurate and learned modern anatomists.
London : Printed by J. Heptinstall, for Tho. Flesher, 1684.

This epitome of anatomy is of no great importance in its own right. However, it is illustrative of the continued impact of Vesalius' anatomical drawings which are used throughout the book some 140 years after the publication of De fabrica.
