Illustration of olfactory bulbs by Johann Eichmann (aka. Johannes Dryander) (1537)

German physician and anatomist Johann Eichmann, known as Johannes Dryander (1500-1560), modified Hundt’s figure for his own monograph in 1537 but retained the representation of the olfactory bulbs. (Source: Dryandrum J. Anatomiae, hoc est, corporis humani dissectionis pars prior: In qua singula quae ad caput spectant recensentur membra, atque singulae partes, singulis suis ad vivum commodissime expressis figuris, deliniantur: Omnia recens nata. Marpurgi [Marburg]: Eucharium Cervicornum, 1537.)
