Gray's Anatomy v. Grey's Anatomy

This is the second of two posts relating to the gray area between illustration and fine arts.

The popular Grey's Anatomy t.v. series borrowed it's name from an anatomy textbook that has become a standard for medical students.

The following is from Wikipedia (wikipedia.org/Gray's_anatomy)
Henry Gray's Anatomy of the Human Body, commonly shortened to Gray's Anatomy, is an English-language human anatomy textbook widely regarded as a classic work on the subject.

The book was first published under the title Gray's Anatomy: Descriptive and Surgical Theory in the United Kingdom in 1858, and the following year in the United States. While studying the anatomical effects of infectious diseases, Gray contracted smallpox from his dying nephew and died at the age of 34, shortly after the publication of the 1860 second edition. Work on his much-praised book was continued by others and on 26 September 2008, the 40th British edition of the book and accompanying website was published under the editorship of Professor Susan Standring.
