Below are text and image excerpts from a historic paper on "The Anatomy of a 17.8mm Human Embryo" by Thyng, FW published originally in The American Journal of Anatomy, Vol.17, No.1 These drawings are based on studies of the Harvard Embryological Collection while he was in Minot's Lab in 1907-08. He was also an anatomist at Northwestern University Medical School.

The embryo external appearance and dimensions suggest that it is a Carnegie stage 19 embryo (Week 7, 48 - 51 days, 16 - 18 mm).
