Beneath the uterus is the vagina. To the left of the vagina is the bladder. To the right of the vagina is the rectum, the last part of the large intestine.

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).
