"Baglivi, Professor of Anatomy at Rome, had a short but brilliant career. He wrote Praxis medica and De fibra motrice, and originated the so-called 'solidar' pathology; he also devoted much time to experimental physiology. Baglivi was a strong advocate of specialism" (Garrison-Morton-Norman 68, for his 'Opera omnia'). The plate shows a tarantula.
