This page from an 1823 notebook kept by John Patten Emmet features detailed anatomical drawings. In 1825 Emmet became the chair of the School of Natural History at the University of Virginia, a position that embraced the disciplines of botany, chemistry, geology, mineralogy, and zoology. Emmet's scientific interests, however, also extended to anatomy.
