    By far the best illustration of the glomerulus I’ve ever seen. Reconized it right away. Wish I had a copy of it way back when while I was tutoring anatomy.

    Please, accept my best regards and gratitudes for this work.
    I am an illustrophilic person and should be understood perfectly before teaching to others.

    It would be great if we could talk about the common subjects.
