In anatomy, the Atlas (C1) is the topmost (first) cervical vertebra of the spine.
It is named for the Atlas of mythology, because it supports the globe of the head.

Having looked at about six different atlases and a dozen or so anatomy textbooks, I found that Rohen et al have produced an atlas that is to the point and yet has detail and quality of photographs that are exceptional.

 Notherby's :: Color Atlas of Anatomy: A Photographic Study of the Human Body
You could probably do very well in anatomy lab exams just using this, as the key to anatomy is finding the big structures and then determining the position of smaller stuff like nerves in relation to them.
While it's not where you want to start when learning anatomy, it's both helpful, as well as reassuring, to be able to see high quality full-color photographs of structures that you've only seen in textbook illustrations, or in a diagrammatic atlas.

The Atlas of Human Anatomy is the anatomy reference that second- and third-year medical students most often recommend to first-year students for their anatomy classes, according to medical educators.
In addition to including revised illustrations, the Atlas is the first anatomy reference to extensively incorporate more anglicized anatomical terminology in place of the traditional Latin terms.
When updating the Atlas, the editors were careful not to change qualities that students appreciated in the first edition, such as its level of detail, presentation style, accuracy and reliability.
