    Il volumetto molto, forse fin troppo, descrittivo La qualit delle immagini andrebbe rivista prima di una successiva ristampa, molte appaiono come fotocopie di fotocopie di fotocopie, un po sbiadite e non comprensibilissime.Non lo trovo molto utile, non ha un approccio didattico utile anche se dovrebbe essere

    Un libro non per principianti, ma da degli spunti di riflessione utilissimi anche a chi alle prime armi Vengono analizzate singolarmente le varie parti del volto e del corpo, in modo da comprendere meglio le forme e la loro realizzazione.

    A good book that has not to be intended as a complete course for learning artistic anatomy, but a nice complement on the subject It contains beautiful illustrations The text nicely covers the external shape of the body but with little information about the underlying anatomy of bones and muscles.

    New reprint The pictures in this book are scans of scans of scans The pictures are grainy, fuzzy, and sometimes different than what is in the original version The poor scans almost make this version unusable If you can find an original, get it.

    I used extensively a copy of the book from the local library and loved it so much that I decided to own one I ordered the same Dover edition and was disappointed to find out that the quality of the print is much worse than the copy from the library The bad rating is only due to the poor reprint, the book itself is great

    This book was a difficult read for me The material was good, but the writing, ambitious Thumbnail illustrations are too small and often ill placed Pros with an existing knowledge of anatomy will fare better than those looking for a quick, how to lesson.

    This is a must read study and copy text for art students Be aware that over the years the reproductions are losing details as if something were being copied from a copy etc What you would expect from etchings but not a modern printing process.

    I bought this used in very good condition from Yellow Square Books and it arrived with the cover falling off, frayed edged and writing need pages.The book itself is a great tool for learning form though, 4 4 for the book if it were remotely in good condition.
