Foetal anatomy. View of a 5-month-old foetus without its membranes and amniotic fluid. The umbilical cord goes from its navel to the placenta (right), which has been lifted up to show blood vessels. Placental membranes are peeled back to show its spongy nature. This anatomical artwork is from plate 332 from volume 5 of 'Manuel d'anatomie descriptive du corps humain' (1825). This 5-volume anatomy atlas was produced by French physician and surgeon Jules Germain Cloquet (1790-1883). The illustrations were by Haincelin. Volume 5 illustrated the anatomy of the digestive, secretory and reproductive organs.
