Bernhardus Siegfried Albinus, Explicatio Tabularum Anatomicarum Bartholomaei Eustachii, anatomici summi.
Bartolomeo Eustachius (d. 1574) discovered the Eustachian tube, the thoracic duct, the adrenals and the abducens nerve. He also gave the first accurate description of the uterus and described the cochlea, throat muscles and origin of the optic nerves. Although Eustachius actually completed his work in 1552, it was lost, then re-discovered in the Vatican Library and first printed in 1714. In 1744, B. S. Albinus published the third printing of the anatomical Tables of Eustachius. Eustachius dissected bodies with the greatest care and diligence, and was conscious about presenting just views of the shape, size and relative position of the organs of the human body. The etching in this first Albinus edition certainly displays Eustachius' superb craft.
