Artists and scientific researchers had perfected the art of anatomical illustration before the debut of scientific journals, but journals provided a new outlet for graphic representations of the natural world. This illustration from Jean Méry's "Observation of two fetuses enclosed in the same membrane" appeared in Mémoires de l'Académie Royale des sciences in 1693.
