A System of Anatomical Plates of the Human Body—Published by Oppenheimer Editions

John Lizars (1787—1860) was a Scottish surgeon, anatomist and medical author. A System of Anatomical Plates of the Human Body was originally issued in 12 parts from 1822 to 1826 and is comprised of 101 hand-colored engravings. William Home Lizars (1788—1859) a painter and well-known engraver in Edinburgh, engraved his bothers plates. William Home Lizars is well-known for engraving John James Audubon’s earliest plates from The Birds of America. John Lizar's "superb atlas is certainly one of the most elegant works [on anatomy] of the nineteenth century " (Heirs of Hippocrates, Richard Eimas, 1436).

Established in 1999, Oppenheimer Editions has partnered with prestigious museums to make prints from their holdings. Works from the New-York Historical Society’s unrivaled collections of John James Audubon’s watercolors and the Hudson River School paintings are examples of art that otherwise would be unobtainable. Among the institutional collections we have partnered with are the American Museum of Natural History, the Field Museum, and Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. These are not mere reproductions. They are limited-edition fine art prints made with the finest quality archival pigments on rag watercolor paper and executed to exacting standards.
