Caption

Early biomechanics. The mechanism of bird flight (across top), horse locomotion (centre left), fish movements (centre and lower right) and a standing dog, monkey and human (lower left) are shown. These diagrams are from a work by the Italian scientist Giovanni Alfonso Borelli (1608-1679), one of the first to apply physics to the study of animal movements. The work is 'De motu animalium' (1680, Rome), with this copy from a 1685 edition.
