Caption: Female reproductive system. 19th century artwork of the external genitals of the female reproductive system. At lower centre is the vagina, the muscular birth canal. The small opening directly above it is the urethra, the opening from the bladder, while below the vagina is the anus. Above the urethra is the clitoris, a body of erectile tissue that is homologous to the penis. The vagina is surrounded by the labia minora, which are surrounded by the labia majora. This anatomical artwork is plate 60 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).
