Hand bones and ligaments. Historical anatomical artwork of the bones (yellow) & ligaments (white) of the hand. Ligaments are bands of fibrous tissue that hold bones together at their joints. The hand is shown from the front (left) and back (right) in the main diagrams. The finger ligaments and tendons are in different stages of dissection for each finger. A section through a finger (lower centre) shows the phalanx bones and the knuckle joints. The central diagram is a section through the eight carpal wrist bones. The triangular fibro-cartilage of the wrist is shown at upper centre. From The Bones and Ligaments of the Human Body (Ed. Jones Quain, London, 1842).
