Image of the Week: Anomalies of the subclavian and carotid arteries

This is a cropped section of a plate from The Anatomy of the Arteries of the Human Body with its
Application to Pathology and Operative Surgery
, which includes a series of lithographic drawings by Richard Quain, an English anatomist and surgeon. The book was published in 1844 and the drawings were made by Joseph Maclise.

You can see more plates over at the University of Toronto Library. The descriptions, written by Quain, are also available from the Internet Archive.
