"The Foot is that part of the lower extremity below the leg on which we stand and walk. It is composed of three series of groups of bones– the tarsal, or hindermost; the metatarsal, which occupy the middle portion; and the phalanges, which form the toes.The tarsal bones are seven in number. The metatarsal bones are five in number. The phalanges are 14 in number, three to each toe, except the great one, which has only two."—(Charles Leonard-Stuart, 1911)
