Caption: Digestive system. 19th century artwork showing the organs of the digestive system. The oesophagus (gullet) carries food from the mouth to the stomach (grey). To the left of the stomach is the liver (dark red). Below these is the large intestine and the space where the small intestine would be. At bottom centre is the rectum, the last part of the large intestine. This anatomical artwork is plate 3 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).
