Anatomy of Melancholy, 160-162: Subsect. VII. – Of the Moving Faculty

A of M 160 - Movement

This post is part of a long, tedious, and very illustrated read-along of Robert Burton’s The Anatomy of Melancholy. More info here and follow along on Facebook here. Illustrations posted via devon_isadevon on Instagram.
