en Limba Engleză Carte Hardback – June 2017
Malleable Anatomies provides an intricate history of the 'diversified' world of mid-18th century Italian anatomy. In many ways the book is a thing of great beauty. It is rich in details that can only be the product of years of meticulous archival research, and it is wonderfully illustrated. The analysis in the individual chapters is also woven together with great skill ... this book is full of interesting insights and perspectives.
