520 1  "As the novel opens, Mateo Colombo, the most famous 
       physician in Renaissance Italy, finds himself behind bars 
       at the behest of Church authorities. He has been charged 
       with heresy, but not for organizing a clumsy team of body 
       snatchers to feed his anatomical research, nor for his 
       obsessive pursuit of Mona Soba, Venice's most beautiful 
       prostitute. His crime ins even more heinous, not only 
       heretical in the Church's eyes, but equally subversive of 
       the whole secular order of Renaissance society. Like his 
       namesake Christopher Columbus, he has made a discovery of 
       enormous significance for mankind. But whereas Christopher
       voyaged outward to explore the world and found America, 
       Mateo looked inward and uncovered the clitoris."--BOOK 
       JACKET. 
520 8  "Based on historical fact, The Anatomist is an utterly 
       fascinating excursion into Renaissance Italy. Above all, 
       it is an audacious novel, exposing not only the social 
       hypocrisies of the day, but also the prejudices and sexual
       taboos that may still be with us four hundred years 
       later."--BOOK JACKET.
