Caption: Thorax and abdomen. 19th century artwork showing the organs of the thorax and abdomen in profile. At top is the right lung. Below the lung are the liver (dark red) and the falciform ligament (pink), which attaches the liver to the body wall. Filling the majority of the abdominal cavity are the large (outer) and small (inner) intestines. The sac-like object at bottom right is the bladder. This anatomical artwork is plate 10 from volume 5 (1839) of 'Traite complet de l'anatomie de l'homme' (1831-1854). This 8-volume anatomy atlas was produced by the French physician and anatomist Jean-Baptiste Marc Bourgery (1797-1849). The illustrations were by Nicolas-Henri Jacob (1781-1871).
