But the treatise that I wrote for Boëthus falls far short in lucidity and accuracy of what I propose now. And so to the opening. Chapter 2 [How to Study the Skeletons of Men and Apes] 218 219 As poles to tents and walls to houses, so are bones to living creatures, for other features naturally take form from them and change with them. If an animal has a round skull, its brain must be round; if elongated, so must the brain be. If jaws be small and face oval, the muscles must correspond. So too, if jaws be large, the creature will have a great muzzle with muscles in keeping.
35 For being continuous with itself and single in the strict sense, it is split at the wrist into four tendons [extensor digitorum communis which is, however, variously divided in different species of ape] producing a uniform movement, each extending the relevant finger. With reason, then, all anatomists treat this muscle as one, disregarding the multiplicity of tendons of insertion. 238 239 For the same reason, they regard as one the muscle lying next to it which moves the little finger laterally [extensor digiti minimi], though it has two tendons of insertion, for when the belly which lies above the tendons contracts it gives the appearance of one muscle.
For here too one can say that the muscle is forked as in fact the anatomists have said because it obviously has both a single head and a single outline, though at the end of the radius, by the wrist, it yields two tendons [one for the thumb and one for the two adjacent fingers]. However, anyone concerned about precision would do better to say that there is not one muscle here, but two, however closely united from the head to the point of divisions into tendons. It is fair to treat them as two, both because, if properly separated, they are found completely distinct, and also because they move parts different in nature.
