Dr. Genpaku Sugita introduced the “Anatomische Tabellen” (New Guide to Anatomy) as a translated book of Western medicine in 1774. This tome was later followed by a European guide to horse anatomy. The “Kaiba Shinsho” (New Book of Horse Anatomy) combining Eastern and Western scholarship by horse veterinarians was published as the first Japanese book of its kind in 1851. This exhibition presents highlights from the book along with humorous horse illustrations, detailed drawings of horse anatomy, models, and other displays offering an education on the equine body.
