So, all my best is dressing old words new,

Spending again what is already spent;

For as the sun is daily new and old,

So is my love still telling what is told.1

Dr Clemente expresses the feelings of our generation about the master's work in his preface to the 1975 first edition of his own Anatomy: "I marveled at the clarity, completeness, and boldness of the anatomical illustrations of the original."
