This review is from: The Resurrectionist: The Lost Work and Writings of Dr. Spencer Black (Hardcover)
The Resurrectionist is a book that compiles diary entries from a ficticious 'Dr. Spencer Black' as he ascends from childhood into adulthood as a master surgeon, and then back down again as he begins to enter madness, believing that he can recreate the long-since-dead mythological beasts.
The first half of the book consists of his diary entries, all of which are quite well written, if bordering on the improbible at times. While the second half shows anatomical and skeletal diagrams for how mythological beasts would have been 'constructed'.
If you're interested in mythologcal animals and anatomy, I'd suggest getting this book, even if just as an odd curiosity to pick up and thumb through the nice diagrams.
