William Cowper (1666-1709) was an English surgeon and anatomist.
 This is his most noted work, and is one of the most beautiful anatomical atlases 
of its time. The first edition was published in 1694 and contained ten illustrative plates. 
Cowper then spent the years until his death on expanding it for the second edition (1724)

Chants de Maldoror illustration  Hans Bellmer 1971

Pale hair in thick windings
Crackled in shadows horribly;
And behind, in rough, long hummings
There unreeled, according to species and size,
The animals of the earth and of the heavenly circlings.
