OF THE

AND ITS APPENDAGES
ACCOMPANYING THE PLATES OF THAT ORGAN”

Prepared by Ludovic Hirschfeld, Senior Professor of Anatomy and surgery to the Medical Faculty, Paris

Drawn and colored from nature by , J. B. Léveillé, Paris

Hirschfeld (1816-76) had his hand drawings copied by Léveillé and chromolithographed. So the material really dates to the mid-1800s although this English translation version was copyrighted in 1891.

J. B. Léveillé, Paris was a famous anatomical artist in Paris in the mid 1800’s.
