Figure 1 of the diaphragm is after an illustration to the first fascicle of Albrecht von Haller's Icones anatomicae (Göttingen 1743-1756). Figures 2-3 are after details of plates first published in the Essai d'anatomie (Paris 1745) with colour mezzotints by Jacques Fabien Gautier d'Agoty after dissections by Jacques-François Duverney. These were republished in their Myologie complette en couleur of Paris 1746 (pls 4 and 9). See this catalogue, nos 33491i and 33571i. The plates of the sixteenth-century Italian anatomist Bartolomaeus Eustachius, the source for figs 4-5, were published for the first time in their entirety by G. M. Lancisi in Rome in 1714 under the title, Tabulae anatomicae
