Female reproductive system, 19th century artwork. At centre is the uterus, or womb. Either side at the top of the uterus are the fallopian tubes, or oviducts, which terminate at the ovaries (white). Below each oviduct is a round ligament. Beneath the uterus is the bladder. The white tube above the uterus is the rectum, the last part of the large intestine. This anatomical artwork is plate 63 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).
