Caption: Human foetus. Historical anatomical artwork of a human foetus in the uterus. The uterus has been sliced open to reveal the foetus in its chorionic sac membrane, which has also been sliced open. The umbilical cord is visible, as are the network of blood vessels on the inner surface of the uterus. The cervix, the neck of the uterus, is at lower centre. This foetus is in the third to fourth month of gestation. 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.
