Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bernhard Siegfried Albinus (originally Weiss) (February 24, 1697 - September 9, 1770) was a German-born Dutch anatomist. Albinus was born at Frankfurt (Oder), where his father, Bernhard Albinus (1653-1721), was professor of the practice of medicine. In 1702 the latter was transferred to the chair of medicine at Leiden University, and it was there that Bernhard Siegfried began his studies in 1709, at the age of 12, having for his teachers such men as Boerhaave and Nikolaus Bidloo. Having finished his studies at Leiden, he went to Paris, where, under the instruction of Sebastien Vaillant (1669-1722), Jacob Winslow (1669-1760) and others, he devoted himself especially to anatomy and botany.
