The anatomy and philosophy of expression, as connected with the fine arts by Charles Bell( Book )

29 editions published between 1844 and 2012 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bell introduced new methods of determining the functional anatomy of the nervous system. In 1804 Bell moved to London, where he opened his own school of anatomy and gradually built up a surgical practice. He combined his skill in painting with his scientific interests in Essays on the anatomy of expression in painting (1806). Besides being an exposition of the anatomical and physiological basis of facial expressions for artists, the book included much philosophy and critical history of art. The book gained Bell some reputation and remained popular, going through several editions up to 1893. -- DSB, vol. 1, p. 583

The hand : its mechanism and vital endowments, as evincing design by Alexander Shaw( )

5 editions published in 1865 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If we select any object from the whole extent of animated nature, and contemplate it fully and in all its bearings, we shall certainly come to this conclusion: that there is Design in the mechanical construction, Benevolence in the endowments of the living properties, and that Good on the whole is the result. As to Man, we shall be led to infer that the pains and pleasures of mere bodily sense (with yet more benevolent design) carry him onward, through the development and improvement of the Mind, to higher aspirations. To comprehend the perfection of the structure of any single organ of an animal body, and to see how the same system of parts is adapted to an infinite variety of conditions, we must view the same organ comparatively: this carries us into a new science, no less than that which regards the changes in the surface of the Globe. And although, in this comparison, we shall find that stupendous revolutions have occurred indicative of power, it is in contemplating the adaptation of the newly introduced forms of living and organised matter to these successive changes in the surface of the earth, that we shall have the best proofs of the continuance of that Power which first created. Such is the course of reasoning which I propose to follow in giving an account of the Hand and Arm. I shall contrast them, in the first place, with the corresponding parts of living creatures through all the divisions of the chain of vertebrated animals; and then I shall take the hand, not merely as combining the perfections of mechanical structure, but as possessing the property of Touch, by which it ministers to and improves every other sense, constituting it the organ in the body the most remarkable for correspondence with Man's capacities"--Book.
