Caption: Digestive system. Artwork from Bartolomeo Eustachi's Tabulae anatomicae, published in 1714. Figures I and III show the stomach and oesophagus in isolation from front and back. Figure II shows the entire digestive system from the back, showing from top to bottom: liver (brown), stomach (white, rounded), pancreas (white, elongated), intestines (white, coiled), rectum and anus (red). Figures IV and V show the large intestine or colon from front and back respectively. Eustachi was an early Italian anatomist who died in 1574. Although he published a textbook during his lifetime, he died before publishing much of his work. The plates were found over 100 years after his death, and published as the Tabulae with explanations by 18th-century anatomist Giovanni Maria Lancisi.
