This was text was one my first purchases as a young art student. When I did not have access to live animals, I spent countless hours copying these plates in gesture and blind contour so that anatomy would be burned into my brain. Although I no longer draw, the fierce images of flayed horses still inhabit my dreams and my work.
An essential reference for anyone wishing to understand mammalian structure. The emphasis is on equine anatomy, but there are extensive plates for other mammals including the dog, the lion, the deer, and the cow.
