Caption: Man-tiger skull, 18th century. This illustration is from 'Osteographia, or the Anatomy of the bones' (London, 1733) by English surgeon and anatomist William Cheselden (1688-1752). It was the first full and accurate description of the anatomy of the human skeletal system, but also included drawings and descriptions of other animal skeletons and bones. These included incorrect identifications and reconstructions.
