~A Forest Of Nerves Within Us ~ original vintage bookplate print

circa 1930

over 80 years old

What an amazing old illustration showing the human nervous system! The nervous system is made to look beautiful!

"If we think of the body as a house, we may think of its master as presiding on the top floor, in a telephone exchange from which the nerves run out to all parts of the body, as suggested here. From the brain, the seat of power, the nerves run everywhere - to the eyes for seeing, to the nose for smelling and breathing, to the mouth for taste, and so on."
