Excerpt from Plates of the Arteries of the Human Body Although there have been many anatomists who, from their acquaintance with the arteries of the human body, have most diligently described them, and very materially aided in enlarging and extending our knowledge of their distribution, yet it cannot be denied that the anatomical student, without the assistance of Plates, however zealously he may gather his information from various works, and however carefully he may endeavour to retain his knowledge thus obtained, will, unaided, make but little progress. I indeed allow that anatomical knowledge can, with far more advantage, and with much more prospect of its proving useful, be obtained by actual dissection than by the examination of plates: But this demands a daily and a careful investigation of many bodies, and a considerable share of manual dexterity; besides, bodies cannot be obtained always, and everywhere, with equal ease. In short, whoever he may be, he cannot prosecute those dissections provided with that share of anatomical information which the manuals of anatomical students require of those engaging in such pursuits. For this reason we owe a debt of deep gratitude to those great men who have handed down, for the use and advantage of the student, engravings of their investigations. But there are few anatomists who have given us their plates either plainly executed, true to nature, or with accurate references. For the most, whether conscious of the paucity of their own ability, or panic-struck at the necessary load of labour, have either borrowed the plates of others, which they have transferred, rudely executed and inaccurately delineated, to their own works, or given us their own dissections so negligently engraved, and contrary to the order of nature, that they exhibit the figures of parts removed from their natural situation, and disagreeing much in proportion and arrangement. And no one will deny, that to the student of anatomy more loss than advantage will accrue from his investigation of plates imperfect in themselves and inaccurately represented.
