In 1895 the first Nomina Anatomica was published in Basel, Switzerland, known as the Basel Nomina Anatomica (BNA), coincidently the same year the term by Preiswerk was introduced (Preiswerk, 1895) in German as 'Perikymatien', although previously in 1678, Dutch researcher Leeuwenhoek was the first to describe them as, "fine circular grooves, oriented cross-sectionally on the surface of the enamel" (Nasmyth, 1839).
