Johannes Dryander | June 2016 Notes from the John Martin Rare Book Room @Hardin Library

JOHANNES DRYANDER (ca. 1500-1560). Anatomiae. Marburg: Apud Eucharium Ceruicornum, 1537.

Dryander (also known as Eichmann), professor of surgery at Marburg, was a friend of Vesalius and among the first anatomists who made illustrations after their own dissections.

This Anatomiae appeared six years before Vesalius’ great work. This was the first significant book on the anatomy of the head and contains 20 full-page woodcuts made from Dryander’s own dissections.

Sixteen of the plates are of the head and brain and were done to show successive stages of dissection. The first eleven plates appeared earlier in his Anatomia capitis humani (1536) and the remaining four plates of the chest and lungs were added as an appendix.  dryander3

Spend an evening with Nicholas Meyer |Star Trek writer & director |Friday, May 20 @Main Library

The UI Libraries is pleased to host Nicholas Meyer, who will make an appearance as a guest speaker in conjunction with the Main Library Gallery exhibition 50 Years of Star Trek.

Meyer, who is an alumnus of the University of Iowa, directed the movie Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982) and contributed to the shooting script for that film (uncredited). He wrote portions of the screenplay for Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986) and went on to direct Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991), for which he also co-wrote the screenplay.

A long-time Sherlockian, Meyer’s writing prowess led to a best-selling novel, The Seven-Per-Cent Solution: Being a Reprint from the Reminiscences of John H. Watson, M.D.  The novel, crafted by Meyer in a style faithful to the original series, follows Holmes through cocaine addiction and recovery.  Meyer received an Oscar nomination for his screenplay of the novel.

Meyer will deliver a brief talk, titled The Last Man To Understand Anything. There will be a Q&A session afterward.

The event is free and open to the public. RSVPs are appreciated. http://bit.ly/UI-LIB-Meyer
