Someone unfortunately erased images of female genital anatomy, so some of that section is unfortunately unavailable. I can't quite understand the reasoning behind it, if they scanned a really old copy, and back in the 1920's someone just couldn't handle that kind of science (while the male reproductive anatomy was left perfectly intact), or if they omitted scanning those particular images (which I doubt), so unfortunately it's incomplete, which may be frustrating. I hope they can find a copy that they can supplement this one with, and add the missing parts.
