Caption: Spinal curvature, 18th-century illustration. Part of the trunk of a crooked skeleton (dug out of a grave) in which all the bones were grown together. This could be a case of kyphosis or other spinal deformity. 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.
