Man, eye, cut-outs from John Banister: Anatomical tables. Table 11 & 12, c.1580
Glasgow University Library, Special Collections, Ms Hunter 364 (V.1.1)In the final two pieces from the Anatomical Tables, the eleventh shows the anterior (front) veins and the twelfth shows the internal organs by means of a movable atlas (damaged). The eleventh and twelfth tables are, however, reversed. The paintings from John Banister: Anatomical tables are part of the Hunterian Collection in the Special Collections Department at Glasgow University Library. Dr William Hunter (1718-83), anatomist, teacher of medicine, Physician Extraordinary to Queen Charlotte, bequeathed his library (some 10,000 volumes) and other collections (including anatomical specimens) to Glasgow University where he had studied. They arrived in Glasgow in 1807.
