Mid 14th Century Anatomy Charts from China

The two anatomical images below are from a 1716 Japanese reprint edition of the classic mid-14th Century Chinese text, Routes of the 14 Meridians and Their Functions.   These anatomies do not depict musculature or the skeleton and it was only centuries later that the Chinese had a term for "muscle."
