Caption: Female reproductive system. 19th century artwork of a section through the female reproductive organs. At centre is the uterus, or womb. The cervix leads from the uterus to the vagina (bottom centre). Either side of the uterus are the fallopian tubes, or oviducts, which terminate at the ovaries (white). Below each oviduct is a round ligament (white tube). This anatomical artwork is Fig. 1 of plate 71 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).
