This is an auction for GRAY'S ANATOMY.

From Wikipedia:

"Anatomy Descriptive and Surgical, commonly shortened to GRAY'S ANATOMY, by Henry Gray, is an English-language human anatomy textbook widely regarded as a classic work on the subject. The book was first published under the title Anatomy: Descriptive and Surgical in the United Kingdom in 1858, and the following year in the United States. Gray contracted smallpox while treating his nephew. His nephew lived, but Gray died at the age of 34, shortly after the publication of the 1860 second edition. Work on his much-praised book was continued by others . . . The British anatomist Henry Gray was born in 1827. He studied the development of the endocrine glands and spleen and in 1853 was appointed Lecturer on Anatomy at St George's Hospital Medical School in London. In 1855 he approached his colleague Henry Vandyke Carter with his idea to produce an inexpensive and accessible anatomy textbook for medical students. Dissecting unclaimed bodies from workhouse and hospital mortuaries through the Anatomy Act of 1832, the two worked for 18 months on what would form the basis of the book. Gray's death came just three years after the publication of his Anatomy Descriptive and Surgical. In England, it appears that Gray published the first two editions himself, in 1858 and 1860. Longman's claims to have begun publishing Gray's Anatomy since 1863. This coincides with the publishing date of the third English edition of Gray's Anatomy . . . "
