Description:

This is from the first anatomical series that used lithography for the illustrations.

From Manuel d’Anatomie Descriptive du Corps Humain, représentée en planches lithographiées.

Artist:

Jules Germain Cloquet (1790 –1883)

Cloquet was a Parisian physician and surgeon. He was apprenticed to his fatherJ.B.A. Cloquet, an artist and engraver and art teacher, and went to medical school after working as a wax-modeler for the Paris Faculty of Medicine. Jules illustrated his own doctoral thesis on hernia, and also drew the plates on stone for the lithographic illsutrations for his thesis that was commercially published in 1819.

In 1821 Jules Cloquet became one of the earliest members elected to the Académie Nationale de Médecine in Paris. Cloquet was known for his expertise as a surgeon, especially his work with hernial disorders. He was also the first to describe and identify the remnant of the embryonic hyaloid artery. This vestige was to become known as Cloquet’s canal. Cloquet’s name is associated with three anatomical terms regarding the femoral canal: “Cloquet’s hernia”: a hernia of the femoral canal “Cloquet’s septum”: a fibrous membrane bounding the annulus femoralis at the base of the femoral canal “Cloquet’s gland”: small lymphatic nodes in the femoral canal Cloquet was a skilled artist; in his best-known work, Anatomie de l’homme, most of the 1300 illustrations were drawn by him. He was the inventor of several surgical instruments, including an arterial forceps. He also had a keen interest in alternative medical practices such as mesmerism and acupuncture.
