Grant’s Atlas of Anatomy Grant's Dissector

JAMA. 2008;299(2):220-226. doi:10.1001/jama.299.2.225-b

For medical textbooks to maintain their primacy and relevance for more than 65 years attests to the unchanging necessity of gross anatomy as a basic foundation for a medical career. Throughout the years, the various editions of the eponymously titled Grant's Atlas of Anatomy have achieved iconic status and reinforced the publisher's claim to their being the “authoritative anatomy atlas” and the “gold standard” for human anatomical dissection. The original edition, authored by J. C. B. Grant in 1943, went through 6 editions before authorship transferred to J. E. Anderson and then presently to Anne Agur and Arthur Dalley.
