Bartholinus Anatomy: Made From the Precepts of His Father, and From the Observations of All Modern Anatomists, Together With His Own is a book by Thomas Bartholin first published in London by John Streater in 1668.

Thomas Bartholin (1616-1680) was the first to describe the entire lymph system, and he confirmed the existence of the thoracic duct.

Bartholinus Anatomy contradicts the pre-16th century medical superstition that the clitoris enlarges by masturbation and negates Felix Platter's assertion that the clitoris can grow as large as a goose's neck: "It is absolutely true and it is not natural and it is monstrous that it grows to the length of a goose's neck."
