DescriptionAnatomical observations written in Latin of dissections by Antonio Marchetti that were observed by John Ray during a visit to Padua [Italy].

Subject: Anatomy

Published in Philosophical Transactions as part of paper titled 'A letter from Mr Samuel Dale to Hans Sloane, R. S. Secr, giving an account of what manuscripts were left by Mr John Ray, together with some anatomical observations made at Padua by the said Mr Ray'.

Read to the Royal Society on 20 November 1706.
