NOTES TO THE ANATOMY

1. Invide quid mordes? Pictoribus atque Poetis,
Quidlibet audendi semper fuit aequa potestas.
]
"Who will attack me from envy? But painters and poets have always shared the right to dare anything." (A. S. Kline) Horace, Ars Poetica, 9-10.

2. Side note: Or to a toad, or a snake made in sugar, that looks unsightly, but tastes sweetly.

3. Side note: M. Plat in his book against famine, fol. ultimo penultimo.

4. bonum quo communius eo melius] "The more common a good is, the better it is."

5. Side note: If that which follows offend the reader, he may turn over a leaf or two, or but smell to his sweet gloves, and the savour will necer offend him.

6. Side note: This cistern in the first plot is figured at the letter A; and so likewise in the second plot. The small pipe in the first plot at D, in the second at E; but it ought to lie out of sight.

7. Side note: This vessel is expressed in the first plot H, M, N; in the second H, K.

8. Side note: The current is expressed in the second plot K.

9. Side note: A special note.

10. Side note: In the second plot I, L.

11. Side note: In the first plot G, F; in the second F and I.

12. Side note: In the first plot between G, I.

13. Side note: This shows in the first plot K, L; in the second G; such are in the backside of watches.

14. Side note: Else all is vain.

15. Side note: These forces, as also the great washer, you shall buy at the queen's braziers in Lothbury, at the Boar's-Head.

16. And lest you should mislike with this phrase, I had it in a verse of a grave author, that was wont to walk up and down the court with a forest bill; I have forgot how it began (like a beast as he was), but it ended in rhyme:

O that I were at Oxenford, to eat some Banbury cakes.
