I have a vintage ankle anatomy illustration to share from the 28th edition of Gray’s Anatomy, (1942) a textbook of human anatomy that was originally written by Henry Gray and illustrated by Henry Vandyke Carter.
The ankle anatomy is a diagram showing the sheaths and tendons round the ankle from a lateral aspect, with pointers and labels for each part.
This is an original scan of the ankle:
As you can see from the diagram above, you can see text from the other side of the page showing through so I’ve made a cleaned up version, removing most flaws and imperfections:
The name J. C. B. Grant at the top of the diagram refers to John C. Boileau Grant (1886–1973) who was a British-Canadian anatomist best known for his textbooks Grant’s Atlas of Anatomy and Grant’s Dissector
I do have a gallery of vintage anatomy which is slowly growing but with the addition of over 1300 illustrations from the Gray’s anatomy publication still to add, it’s going to be quite a comprehensive source of material!
