Caption: Tongue anatomy, 19th century artwork. Nerves are white, arteries are red and veins are blue. At left are views of the ventral (bottom, top left) and dorsal (top, bottom left) sides of the tongue. The globular structures are salivary and mucous glands. At right are transverse sections through the tongue and jaw (top and centre) and the tongue (bottom). Filiform papillae, which sense pressure, can be seen on the surface of the tongue. This anatomical artwork is plate 15 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).
