Caption

Bloodletting sites. Latin text illustrating the veins where blood was extracted using cuts or leeches. Bloodletting, or phlebotomy, was thought to cure illnesses believed to be caused by imbalances in bodily fluids. The diagram, known as a vein man, is from Johannes de Ketham's Fasciculus Medicinae (Venice, 1491).
