Caption: Abdominal anatomy. 19th century artwork of the abdomen showing the nerves (white) of the spleen (top right), pancreas (cream, across centre) and the kidneys (lower right and left). At centre is the coeliac, or solar, plexus, the junction of the network of nerves that serve the upper abdominal organs. At bottom centre are the aorta (red), the body's main artery, and the vena cava (blue), the body's main vein. This anatomical artwork is plate 48 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).
