Juan de Valverde was a student of Realdo Columbo, a professor of anatomy and surgeon at the University of Padua who studied under Vesalius. Valverde became the most important anatomy specialist in Spain in the late sixteenth century and wrote Historia de la composicion del cuerpo humani. Although much of the text was based on the writings of Hieronymus Fabricius (1537–1619) and the majority of the images were derived from Vesalius's De humani corporis fabrica, the work was still highly regarded.
