1849 Bilder Atlas Scientific Prints

I was intrigued by these scientific anatomy prints, a lot of 20 total. They are 1849 engraving by Henry Winkles from the Bilder Atlas zum Conversations - Lexikon Ikonographische Encyclopadie der Wissenschaften und Kunste (Iconographic Encyclopedia of Science and Art) by German author Johann Georg Heck - Leipzig 1849.

I've posted six of them here along with some close-up details. You can click into each image to see more details.

Each print meaures 9-1/4 x 11-3/4 in.

(Why didn't I keep at least one of these for myself!)
