A fine papier-mâché model of the torso by Dr Auzoux from the early 20th century, distributed by Adam Rouilly & Co.
The abdominal and chest wall detaches to reveal the internal anatomy. Each individual structure is numerically labelled in exacting detail, down to the individual heart valves with their chordae tendineae. In quite exceptional condition and complete with all abdominal and thoracic organs. On the base is written “Clastic anatomy by Dr Auzoux. Adam Rouilly and Co 1 Fitzroy St London W1”
