Scope and content

Caption accompanying the print reads: "The aorta was believed to carry not blood but vital spirit throughout the body. The three cusps of the aortic valve were called ostiola. The recurrent laryngeal nerve, nervus revursus, on each side was thought to close the epiglottus by pulling downward. Perhaps this is why the nerve is here represented as cord-like."
