Charles Bell has enduring fame as a neurologist because of his recognition of the dual nature of spinal nerves as well as his description of facial palsy. However in his early life he and his older brother produced fine anatomical atlases. His first publication was a book on anatomy for artists. These plates are a good example of his accomplished style as a medical illustrator.
