Tabula XLVI illustrating the muscles and nerves of the human eye, taken from the anatomical treatise 'Schola et Historia Medicinae', by William Rowley, England, edition by Royce, England, 1851-1860
This print shows the external muscles of the eye, which are responsible for moving the eyeball, viewed from different angles. This print was taken from an anatomical treatise called 'Schola Medicinæ Universalis Nova' or the 'New Universal History and School of Medicine' by William Rowley (1742-1806), an English male midwife, surgeon and anatomist. First published in 1793, the work contained 68 copper engravings of the human body as well as a brief history of medicine. Anatomical prints were useful tools for medical students as specific features of the body could be enlarged and picked out, making the structures easier to understand.
