Osteographia, or The Anatomy of the Bones is a book on human anatomy written by the English surgeon and anatomist William Cheselden. The book was published in 1733 and is primarily focused on the anatomy and physiology of the skeletal system.

The text is divided into three parts, with the first section providing a general overview of bone structure, including the classification of bones, their development and growth, and their internal and external structures. The second section is dedicated to the anatomy of specific bones in the body, including the skull, spine, ribs, and limbs. Cheselden provides detailed descriptions of the structure, function, and variations of each bone, accompanied by copperplate engravings that illustrate the bones from multiple angles and perspectives. The third section of the book focuses on the use of anatomy in surgical practice, including the treatment of bone fractures, dislocations, and other injuries.

Osteographia is considered a landmark work in the field of anatomy, particularly for its detailed and accurate illustrations of the bones of the human body. The copperplate engravings were produced by Cheselden himself, and are widely regarded as some of the finest examples of anatomical illustration from the 18th century. The book was well-received by both the medical community and the general public, and helped to establish Cheselden's reputation as a leading figure in the field of anatomy and surgery.
