(Chapter 10) Footnote 7:
Vesalius attended medical school for three years in Paris, 1533-1536. He refers again to his field trips to the Cemetery of the Innocents later in the Fabrica (chapter 39, 1543 p. 159) and in the China Root Epistle, p. 194 (where he has to fight off scavenging dogs). See C.D. O’Malley, op. cit. pp. 59f. The sentence alluding to this experience was deleted from the 1555 edition.
