(Chapter 27) Footnote 17:
Given the positioning of the hand at the beginning of Ch. 25, supra presumably means at the distal extremity and infra at the proximal. But here as in a previous chapter (see Ch. 24 n. 43) he is inconsistent. See for example n. 27 below. Unlike Vesalius, modern anatomy regularly represents the hand with the fingers pointed toward the bottom of the page, making the “upper” proximal and the “lower” distal.
