About the Author
Frank H. Netter was born in New York City in 1906. He studied art at the Art Students League and the National Academy of Design before entering medical school at New York University, where he received his Doctor of Medicine degree in 1931. During his student years, Dr. Netter’s notebook sketches attracted the attention of the medical faculty and other physicians, allowing him to augment his income by illustrating articles and textbooks. He continued illustrating as a sideline after establishing a surgical practice in 1933, but he ultimately opted to give up his practice in favor of a full-time commitment to art. After service in the United States Army during World War II, Dr. Netter began his long collaboration with the CIBA Pharmaceutical Company (now Novartis Pharmaceuticals). This 45-year partnership resulted in the production of the extraordinary collection of medical art so familiar to physicians and other medical professionals worldwide. Icon Learning Systems acquired the Netter Collection in July 2000 and continued to update Dr. Netter’s original paintings and to add newly commissioned paintings by artists trained in the style of Dr. Netter. In 2005, Elsevier Inc. purchased the Netter Collection and all publications from Icon Learning Systems. There are now over 50 publications featuring the art of Dr. Netter available through Elsevier Inc.
Dr. Netter’s works are among the finest examples of the use of illustration in the teaching of medical concepts. The 13-book Netter Collection of Medical Illustrations, which includes the greater part of the more than 20,000 paintings created by Dr. Netter, became and remains one of the most famous medical works ever published. The Netter Atlas of Human Anatomy, first published in 1989, presents the anatomic paintings from the Netter Collection. Now translated into 16 languages, it is the anatomy atlas of choice among medical and health professions students the world over.
The Netter illustrations are appreciated not only for their aesthetic qualities, but, more importantly, for their intellectual content. As Dr. Netter wrote in 1949 “clarification of a subject is the aim and goal of illustration. No matter how beautifully painted, how delicately and subtly rendered a subject may be, it is of little value as a medical illustration if it does not serve to make clear some medical point. Dr. Netter’s planning, conception, point of view, and approach are what inform his paintings and what make them so intellectually valuable.
Frank H. Netter, MD, physician and artist, died in 1991.

I have been comparing different anatomy atlas before coming to the decision of buying a new copy of Netter's. Other candidates include Thieme's (Gilroy, 3e), Grant's (14e) and Rohen's (8e, renamed as 'Anatomy: A Photographic Atlas'). Always have a read of PDFs or in bookshops before buying any of these.
Pros: Contains more radiographs and some annotated texts for clinical correlations. Superb at depicting the musculoskeletal system. Good paper/binding quality. The WinkingSkull website is superb for review thanks to its label on/off function. The smartphone app 'Prometheus', though in German, compliments well with the book.
Cons: The price is the highest amongst the four.
Pros: Cheapest amongst the four, with some texts for clinical correlations as well. An Amazon US customer (a retired plastic surgeon I remember) said Grant's is the only atlas that showed fabella, a small bone found in <30% individuals (which I checked is true, and it is labelled in one of the knee radiographs). Cross-referenced in Grant's dissector. Not so heavy to carry compared with Netter's and Thieme's.
Cons: The clarity of images falls behind Netter's and Thieme's. Not enough views for some of the structures.
Pros: Real cadaver images - superb for 'real-world' dissections.
Cons: Expensive (I would recommend keeping a PDF/eBook though). Lack of clarity (due to the nature of cadavers).
Coming back to Netter's:
The new edition features new radiographs and clinical correlation tables. Other than these, the (vast) majority of the content remains the same as the 6th edition. NB the latest version of Grant's Dissector is still cross-referencing the old (6e) Netter's. I haven't tried the StudentConsult access yet, but I suppose it will be roughly similar to what we get from Thieme's (except that dissection videos come only with Netter's).
My copy does not have the issue of poor binding as for other Amazon US customers.
I would recommend the following combination of anatomy books:
Text: Gray's Anatomy for Students or Moore's Clinically Oriented Anatomy (COA). NB an earlier edition is fine, but try to avoid Essential Clinical Anatomy (ECA) as the blue boxes (clinical correlations) are heavily edited. COA does have excessive details, but its blue boxes are indispensable.
Atlas: Netter's (for lectures/self-study/review) and/or Thieme's (in later years perhaps).
Dissection preparation (can be done electronically): Grant's Dissector + Rohen's Atlas.
Review: Clinical Anatomy Made Ridiculously Simple (4e, our school's required text) and/or BRS Gross Anatomy (now at 9e).
You will need a preserved book too for dissection tests.
I loved the ability to download the digital version of this book so I can "carry" it anywhere when I need to study. The pictures are clear and easy to understand. The X-ray and MRI-images are a nice addition, so you can learn -"How those parts look in real life?"
What I didn't like was the soft quality of the book cover. I know it is not a hardback, but still, I would want it to be more durable.
I've read some buyers having problems with this book falling apart. I think those books are probably fake runoffs from China or India. You can buy them super cheap from sources with unknown locations, which immediately raises suspicion. I got mine from Amazon and it came with security attachments that prove it's genuine. Mine was still a good price but it also worth it to pay slightly more from a proper seller that sells genuine books with refund facility. You get what you pay for, I would like to think.
The only comment I have as a slight negative is it's all illustrations and some X-ray's. To me this isn't really a bad thing as I appreciate and get more out of the illustrations, but some have found it more helpful actually looking at images of prosections. Either way, totally worth a spot in your library!
Very happy with the book. Is 2nd hand but is like new, and arrived 5 days before the schedule day to arrive.
