Evelyn table blood vessels. Artwork of two of the 17th-century anatomical preparations (arteries, left; veins, right) donated to the Royal Society of London in 1667 by the English author John Evelyn (1620-1706). Known as the Evelyn tables, their history is given in the Latin inscription along with their origin (Padua, Italy, in 1646). Branches of the abdominal veins are at lower centre. This page is from volume 5 of the 1734 edition of 'The Philosophical Transactions', an abridged collection of papers from the Royal Society. The original paper was published by Evelyn and Cowper in volume 23 (1702-3) of 'Philosophical Transactions'.
