Caption: Kidney anatomy. 18th-century journal page illustrating the anatomy of a kidney removed from a cadaver. The right kidney is at upper left, and the left kidney is at upper right. They are connected by the renal arteries to the descending trunk of the aorta (centre). The adrenal glands are at upper centre. This page is from volume 7 of the 1734 edition of 'The Philosophical Transactions', an abridged collection of papers from the Royal Society. The original paper was published in 1725 by the British surgeon John Ranby (1703-1773) in volume 33 of 'Philosophical Transactions'. Ranby was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1724.
