Notes:

The third figure shews the internal action of the elementary and planetary influx after the fall, upon the vital parts of man, whence diseases and death follow in a direct and regular course. For, as action of the stars on man are agents, and the elements of which he is composed patients, the same as in the outward world; so we find, as they are situated in the outward world at the time of birth, either as to strength or imbecility, so shall be the inward weakness of vigour of the vital parts of man born under them; and of such shall be the inbred quality of the disease thus implanted in our fallen nature to bring on corruptibility and death.” (p. 1061)

The engraving shows a naked man with his chest cut away to show his inner workings, a mixture of intestines, internal organs and astrological signs and symbols. There is also a band of symbols about his head, and someome has kindly removed the skin from his right foot to reveal the tendons. He waslks through dark and stormy clouds.
