Frank H. Netter (1906-1991) was an artist and physician whose illustrations depicted many medical conditions, treatments and anatomy of the human body. Before Netter studied medicine and became a physician he studied art and had established himself as a commercial artist early in his career. After completing medical school he set up his medical practice but was unable to make a living as a physician because of the Great Depression. It was at this time that he began making medical illustrations for various pharmaceutical companies. His pictures appeared in medical advertisements, pamphlets and books. His relationship with Ciba Pharmaceutical Company (later called CIBA-GEIGY Corporation and Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation) encompassed most of his career and resulted in the publication of many anatomy books. The best known of these is the eight volume set titled the Ciba Collection of Medical Illustrations or the "green books." The first volume of this collection was published in 1953 and the last volume was published posthumously in 1993. This collection is now known as the Netter Collection of Medical Illustrations. Frank H. Netter completed the 'Atlas of Human Anatomy' in 1989 and a large number of his illustrations were used in Clinical Symposia which was a publication of Ciba.
The collection consists of post-1801 theses in multiple languages from leading medical schools throughout the world. Europe is well represented, with many theses originating from universities in Germany, France, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland. Countries with lesser quantities in the collection include Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Algeria, Indonesia, and others.
