Abstract

This image in Bonaveri's Notomie is a copy of the seventh figure from Andreas Vesalius’s De Humani Corporis Fabrica. The illustration top left is a dissected diaphragm with the two crural (leg-like in shape) attachments. The larger of the two holes is for the oesophagus and the smaller for the vena cava. However, they have been incorrectly transposed (the oesophagus should be on the left and vena cava on the right), as this and all the other illustrations in the work are mirror image copies of Vesalius’ originals. The ‘D.B.S.’ stands for Domenico Bonaveri Sculpsit. Bonaveri was the engraver.
