Caption: Elephant tooth anatomy. 18th-century journal page illustrating various aspects of the anatomy of elephant teeth. At upper left is a cross-section through a tooth, with the tooth of a young elephant at top right. Down right is a tooth that has cracked upon drying. At bottom is a tusk (an elongated incisor tooth). Above the tusk is a tooth displaying calcination. This page is from volume 6 of the 1734 edition of 'The Philosophical Transactions', an abridged collection of papers from the Royal Society. The original paper was published in 1728 by the English physician Hans Sloane (1660-1753) in volume 35 of 'Philosophical Transactions'.
