For the medical historian any writing of Vesalius is significant. This discussion of a letter on bloodletting, published in 1539, is beautifully presented in a work with numerous and competent annotations. It affords an insight not only into the knowledge of anatomy of that day but also into many other other aspects of scientific work.
