Caption

Thorax and abdomen. At top are the lungs, with the oesophagus (gullet, pink) and aorta (red), the body's main artery, between them. The diaphragm separates the thoracic and abdominal cavities. Below the diaphragm are the spleen (purple, left), stomach (grey, centre left) and liver (dark red, right). At centre is the pancreas (yellow). At right and left are parts of the large intestine. This anatomical artwork is plate 8 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).
