Turtle Anatomy of 1820

I like turtles! So today when stumbling around on the internet I found a cool little piece on brainpickings.com about a book from the 1820's that shows wonderful illustrations of the anatomy of turtles. The book Anatome Testudinis Europaeae by the German physician and naturalist Ludwig Heinrich Bojanus (1776–1827). The two-volume is in Latin, featuring some stunning images of turtle anatomy, was published in 1820 and is now in public domain, digitized by Harvard for your viewing pleasure. So enjoy!
