Varieties based upon epiphyses, processes, heads, etc.

For the same reason, the appearance of processes, epiphyses, heads, brows, cavities, and tubercles are not taken into account for the present; nor can any variety of bones be derived from these features, since I have so far not explained what I should name a process, an epiphysis, or other features of this kind, being necessarily on the point of doing so in the second of the chapters that follow. Similarly, varieties derived from the way bones are joined together cannot be understood unless the joints have been carefully described The fourth chapter will attest that these are quite numerous, and not very easy to learn.
