The “muscle men” illustrations each show a naked man, in a progressive state of dissection. De Fabrica wsa hoping that they would be useful not only for doctors but also for the painter, sculptor and moulder.
Image courtesy of the U.S. National Library of Medicine; there are thumbnails and images at their Vesalius page, and higher resolution TIFF images are available.
The image bears the Latin words (not shown here), SECVNDA MVSCVLO RVMTA-/BVLA., which says that this is the second ofthe muscle men. The letters on the engraving are presumably tied to the text, but I do not have access to an English translation.
