Intestines from the book "Trong Jim Tchou King" by Dr. Oang Oé-Té.

"Accurate diagram of human intestines" is what the four top characters in this image say. Directly under the throat are characters pointing out the Adam's apple, and below, one of the leaf-like offshoots hanging down like a collar, is marked "xin", heart. The balloon-like shape at the bottom is the urinary bladder. (Date unknown.) Ms Chinese 5341, Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris.
