Physiological Anatomy of the Lungs

In each and all of each of these different <s>structures the<\s> portions 
of the lungs, the shape which they present consists 
of three distinct surfaces, clearly defined by margins 
more or lass acute. They exhibit, first an upper 
and somewhat convex surface in which the capil=
=lary blood-vessels, principally in connection with 
the pulmonary artery are seen; next an inner or 
flat surface forming the interlobular surface and 
which in the aggregate corresponds with that portion 
of the lungs, which lies in contact with the peri=
=cardium; and thirdly the under surface, which 
is rather concave than otherwise and is that portion 
<s>of the lungs<\s> which lies upon the other leaflets or 
lobules and coincides in the aggregate with that 
portion of the lungs, which lies upon the diaphragm. 
A transverse section of each <s>lung<\s> leaflet therefore is some=

between the <s>leaflets<\s> surfaces of each leaflet is filled 
up with a spongy tissue, and the name of aircells 
is usually given to the interstices within it - 
Each group of lobules, each lobule and each leaflet 
may therefore as far as these particulars go be looked 
upon as a diminutive but perfect lung - 
The capillaries belonging to the two surfaces last men=
