A Stereoscopic Atlas of Human Anatomy

The Bassett and Gruber Legacy
by Robert A. Chase, M.D.
Hardcover book with 12 View-Master Reels

A Stereoscopic Atlas of Human Anatomy

Begun in 1948 and not completed until 1962, the original "Stereoscopic Atlas of Human Anatomy" consisted of 221 View-Master Reels with 1,554 color stereo views of dissections of every body region. Each stereo view was accompanied by a black and white labeled drawing and explanatory text, and the entire work was assembled into 23 printed volumes grouped into eight sections by body region. This massive project was the result of a cooperative effort between David L. Bassett, M.D., who performed the dissections and wrote the text, and William B. Gruber, the inventor of the View-Master system, who did the stereo photography.

The new "Stereoscopic Atlas of Human Anatomy" contains 83 of the original stereo views on 12 View-Master Reels and the labeled drawings that accompany them. The text and stereo image selection for this new book was done by Robert A. Chase, M.D., of the Anatomy Department of Stanford University (where Bassett and Gruber did all their work). These 83 views are taken from all the body regions, and even though they represent only about 5% of the images in the original Atlas, the book is still a very comprehensive medical text that would be of great value to doctors, medical students, medical researchers, and anyone else interested in human anatomy.
