For much of the Tokugawa period (1600-1868), the Japanese had contact
with the West only via Dutch traders in the port of Nagasaki. This small
presence contributed to the development of studies of Western science
and learning known as Rangakuliterally, "Dutch learning." This volume
is a translation of Tabulæ Anatomicæ in ouibus corporis humani
omniumque ejus partium structura et usus brevissime explicantur, by
the Dutch scholar, Johann Adam Kulmus (1689-1745).
