Caption: Heart and lungs. Historical anatomical artwork of the human heart and lungs, seen from the front. Dissection hooks have been used to draw back the lungs (red, left and right) to reveal the heart (centre) with its pericardium partially opened to reveal the blood vessels on the surface of the heart. At upper centre the trachea (windpipe, white) supplies air to the lungs. Either side of the trachea are the major blood vessels (carotid arteries, red; jugular veins, blue) of the neck. The major shoulder blood vessels are also seen. Artwork from the 19th-century book Atlas of Anatomy, by Bourgery and Jacob. This book, which took over 20 years to complete, was published in France in 8 volumes from 1831 to 1854. It contained 726 colour plates covering both anatomy and surgical techniques.
