The RSM Library’s copy of Vesalius’s 1543 De fabrica humani is an incomplete copy with some damp-staining and foxing, a hole on p. 299, the famous frontispiece illustration is missing, and includes annotations not related to the text. It is not a variant edition, but on page 217 can be found a pencil portrait sketch of a bearded man’s profile.
