"Icones Nervorum Capitis," Friedrich Arnold, 1834

I was just tipped off to the rather amazing neuroanatomical treatise Icones Nervorum Capitis by German anatomist Friedrich Arnold (1803-1890), published in Heidelberg in 1834.

The entire work, worth a long perusal, is available on the Universitäts Bibliothek Heidelberg website. Click on the images, drawn from the same website, to see larger versions.
