Title: Coeur, poumons et gros vaisseaux, vus dans, leur ensemble par le plan posterieur / Heart, lungs and large vessels, seen in their whole from the posterior view
Description: The lungs, trachea (windpipe), heart and surrounding arteries and veins, shown lifesize from behind. The illustration is in the style of a dissected preparation, with the lungs pulled back slightly by hooks to show the organs underneath clearly. The accompanying text is in French. Taken from a volume covering the anatomy of the respiratory and circulatory systems. The volume was originally part of an eight volume series by Bourgery, which is commonly regarded as one of the most beautifully illustrated works of anatomy ever published. ( NB. This volume has been rebacked and the original boards retained and repaired through a kind donation from the Derriford Hospital League of Friends).
