Caption: Lung blood vessels. Historical anatomical artwork of the blood vessels of the human lungs and heart, seen from the front. The lungs (either side of the heart) have been dissected to reveal the blood vessels. These carry deoxygenated blood (blue) or oxygenated blood (red). Veins bring blood to the heart, while arteries carry blood away from the heart. The lungs reoxygenate the blood using air brought to the lungs through the trachea (upper centre). Blood vesels are also seen on the surface of the heart. 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.
