Fig. 7. The above figures are from Ledermuller, after Ruysch

Fig. 1, a and b, are “rudimentary” human embryos.

Fig . 2. The three spheres are said to be unfertilized human ova suspended by threads. They evidently must be immature Graaflan follicles.

Fig. 3. An abortus slightly enlarged.

Fig. 5. An opened abortus said to still contain an embryo, the tail of which was attached and thought to be the rudiment of the umbilical cord.

Fig. 6. A similar human embryo in which the head and abdomen are said to have differentiated and the umbilical cord shows further development. (This; to be sure. is a retained macerated, and probably abnormal, fetus.)
