= The German technician F.J. Steger and pathological anatomist C.E. Bock collaborated to produce educational anatomical models in the 19th century. Until then, various materials were used to make anatomical models i.a. wood, ivory, wax and papier-maché which made their manufacture laborious, costly and often imprecise. Steger and Bock revolutionized anatomical models in the 1880s by developing a fast and accurate method of producing plaster-cast models, for which they now are famous. J. Cornwall and C. Smith, "Anatomical models by F.J. Steger (1845-1938): the University of Otage Collection" in Eur. J. Anot. 18 (3) 2014, pp.209-211. SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE XCIV.
