These artworks show (left-right then top-bottom): front and rear views of a hip joint (left hip; spine, upper leg and pelvis bones all shown); side views of the same joint from both sides (the internal view at right is sectioned); close-up of capsular ligament of a hip joint and a dislocated hip with the capsular ligament removed. Down centre are details of the ligaments joining the two sides of the pelvis. Artwork from The Bones and Ligaments of the Human Body (Ed. Jones Quain, London, 1842).
