Plate III

The inner surface presented the following appearances, which are to be observed in Plate III., engraved from a drawing made by Mr. Perry, with his usual fidelity and skill.

The muscular fibres of the uterus, at those parts to which the placenta had not been attached, were perfectly visible in rounded columns, not unlike those of the carneae columnae of the heart; and no orifice of any description was to be seen on the most accurate examination. At the upper and back part of the fundus, was a space, irregularly circular, of from six to seven inches in diameter, of a darker colour than the rest, to which the placenta had evidently been attached.
