Contacts were made at institutions of higher learning, museums,
libraries and an update of locations of the two previous studies by
Cushing in 1943 and Horowitz and Collins in 1984.
A total of 64 copies of the 1543 Fabrica were recorded in 47 Universities
and Institutional libraries in the USA. Besides confirming their
presence at the previously recorded sites, we have found 18 more
copies in twelve additional facilities including further two copies with
colored and tinted illustrations.
The majority of locations recorded by Cushing seventy years ago
and subsequently reported thirty later by Horowitz and Collins are still
in their original collections.
Location of first edition Vesalius in private collections were more
difficult to locate and have reduced to six from at least ten since 1984
with mainly physician owners.
