Seminal publication on anatomy of the nervous system, released in the 1780s. Features beautiful hand-coloured etched stipple engravings of sections of brain tissue. (so it ends up looking something like a colourful early version of the modern day brain CT scan). Comes from a majory historical anatomy atlas work by Felix Vicq d'Azyr and seems to be the only copies of these illustrations on the web.

1440 northern Italian copiously illustrated parchment MS. It contains beautiful (and sometimes fanciful) depictions of plants that were considered to have medicinal properties.

Manuscript produced in Germany in the 1520s with naive hand-painted medicinal herbs. They're all fairly eccentric in appearance (non-naturalistic) although some of them can be recognised.
