Internal body organs. Dissection showing some of the internal organs of the chest and abdomen. The lungs have been removed. The heart (red, in ribcage) is still present. In the abdomen, the large and small intestines are shown, with the latter looped around the former (coiled). This anatomical artwork is plate 295 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.
