"In this systematic study, Stubbs depicts the horse in three positions - side, front and back. He first presents the skeleton alone in each of these three positions, then devotes to each position five studies of layers of muscles, fascias, ligaments, nerves, arteries, veins, glands and cartilages. Accompanying each of these eighteen etchings is a schematic etched outline with lettered parts that are keyed to the identifying text. the text is given both in Stubbs' original version and in a modernised version prepared in the Thirties by J. C. McCunn and C. W. Ottaway."
