Last chance to see

Our spotlight exhibition Art of the Unseen: Anatomical Illustration in the Special Collections ends this week, with Icones anatomicae (Gottingae : apud viduam B. Abrami Vandenhoeckii, 1756) by Albrecht von Haller (1708-1777) on display. Appointed as chair of medicine, anatomy, botany and surgery in the newly founded university of Göttingen in 1736, this Swiss botanist and anatomist was the first to illustrate the arteries.

Fasc. 6

If you would like to view the spotlight exhibition, please contact the staff of the Special Collections Reading Room in the Hardiman Research Building at specialcollections@nuigalway.ie.
The spotlight exhibition can also be viewed in its entirety on the digital display wall in the Hardiman Foyer during the month of February.
