Giovanni Domenico Santorini (1681-1737)

Giovanni Domenico Santorini, former student of the noted physician Marcello Malpighi (1628-1694), was considered to be one of the most industrious anatomists of the eighteenth century, and his output is reflected in several eponymous anatomical structures, e.g.: Santorini's minor caruncle. His Observationes anatomicæ can be seen this week in our anatomical illustration spotlight exhibition Art of the Unseen: Anatomical Illustration in the Special Collections.

Observationes anatomicæ (Lugduni Batavorum : Apud Gysbertum Langerak, 1739)

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
