A Movable Atlas Showing the Mechanism of Vision

beckerrarebooks:

A while back we posted images from Georg Bartisch’s flap anatomy. Here are some images from another flap anatomy (or movable atlas, as it chooses to call itself).  This is an English translation of part IV of G.J.A. Witkowski’s Anatomie iconoclastique, and shows the parts of the eye.  The library also has Part III (the female genital organs) and Part VII (the male genital organs).
