Your anatomy.... in TRANS-VISION!

The ever-delightful Mary S. brought me a one-of-a-kind treat from her bookshelf today: A thin, stapled paperback Better Homes & Gardens Family Medical Guide publication, undated but probably from the 1950s, featuring six transparent full-color plates -- in TRANS-VISION!* -- of the human torso. If you've been wondering where your liver is, check out plate IV, pictured here. (Hm, looks like the painter of Prometheus shot a little low.) And note that Joe gets a significantly bigger piece. That's brothers for you.

There's a tiny green gallbladder peeking out from under Joe's half. That will go away entirely, into the hospital garbage bin.

*TRANS-VISION, copyright Milprint Inc., Milwaukee Wisconsin. I looked them up... today they print foil candy bar wrappers.
