Lot Essay

Louis Thomas Jerome Auzoux (1797-1880) was a French anatomist and naturalist. Louis Auzoux obtained a medical degree in 1818. In 1820 he visited the papier-mache workshop of Francois Ameline and later set up his own business making human and veterinary anatomical models in Normandy. This traded as Maison Auzoux. Auzoux also made large scale zoological and botanical models for educational use. The models were called "anatomy clastique" because they could be taken apart to show the full structure such as this lot.
