In 1858, Drs. Henry Gray and Henry Vandyke Carter created a book for their surgical colleagues that established an enduring standard among anatomical texts. After more than 150 years of continuous publication, Gray’s Anatomy remains the definitive, comprehensive reference on the subject, offering ready access to the information you need to ensure safe, effective practice.

This 41st edition has been meticulously revised and updated throughout, reflecting the very latest understanding of clinical anatomy from field leaders around the world. The book’s traditional lavish art programme and clear text have been further honed and enhanced, while major advances in imaging techniques and the new insights they bring are fully captured in new state-of-the-art X-ray, CT, MR, and ultrasonic images.

The completely reconfigured accompanying eBook version is richly enhanced with additional content and media, covering all the body regions, cell biology and embryogenesis. This unlocks a whole new level of related information, interactivity and understanding, in keeping with the spirit of innovation that has characterized Gray’s Anatomy since its inception.

Published Reviews

    "In short, the 40th edition of Gray's Anatomy is not only the most complete textbook of anatomy on the market but is possibly the most complete anatomical atlas available." -JAMA, May 6, 2009--Vol 301, No. 17, pp. 1829-1830.

    "I am not aware of any book currently in print in any language that contains as much anatomical information as the 40th edition. it should be in the library of anyone who has the need for a comprehensive anatomical reference book. It may seem costly, but, per pound, it really is a bargain. Many books on the market offer much, much less but cost much more." -JAMA, May 6, 2009--Vol 301, No. 17, pp. 1829-1830.

    "One of the most valuable aspects of Gray's is the way it integrates structure at all levels, from the subcellular through the regional." -JAMA, May 6, 2009--Vol 301, No. 17, pp. 1829-1830.

    "[Gray's Anatomy] is to medical textbooks what Webster's is to dictionaries." -American Medical News, Posted Jan. 12, 2009 at amednews.com

    "Each section has been reorganized by an editor, expert in the field, assisted by a group of contributors, and scrutinized by a panel of international reviewers. Anatomists, embryologists, cell biologists, surgeons, radiologists and other clinicians have brought their extensive experience to update the text and artwork. Moreover, essential and recent references are given at the end of each chapter of the different sections. The result is a well-documented and clinically-oriented state-of-the-art volume...The presentation of the book is practical and attractive...To sum up, this new 150th anniversary edition of Gray’s Anatomy, which is the first one in full-colour, is quite simply a magnificent work."
    Surgical and Radiologic Anatomy, November 2008


    "The all-important tradition of improvement with age is most emphatically maintained by the newest edition of Gray's Anatomy . . . New and important ground has been broken . . . The authors have increasingly taken on the task of accommodating the new uses to which anatomy is being put in clinical situations, such as minimally invasive surgery, endoscopy, arthroscopy, microsurgery, and the entire expanding field of imaging, including three-dimensional studies . . . Beautifully produced and medically invaluable." - Scientific American, review of the 39th edition

    Gray’s Anatomy has been around since 1858. In 2008, Elsevier can be proud of the first class presentation of this updated, fabulous book. It has been completely re-imagined with re-organised contents and 1800 images now in full-colour, in addition to more than 120 new imaging studies. For those who need a detailed anatomy reference, this book is the business and it’s the only one you’ll ever need.
    Unividas Review, January 2009

    "This book has really excellent content. It’s the first point of call for a query, better than standard textbooks. Good authorage and editorial input is evident. A new edition of Gray’s always has to live up to its historical place in the medical world. The new edition updates content, is well presented, readable and accurate. This is supported by quality illustrations. A book for those wanting a reference source for anatomy which is reliable and current."
