the texture of the lungs themselves is broken up into 
lobules, by means of fissures which divide the 
lobules from each other - These lobules are wholly 
distinct and separate from one another as regards 
the divisions of the Bronchial tube and of the Pul=

already observed, the small twigs of pulmonary 
veins, crossing the space or interval which separates 
the lobules from each other, bind the different lobules 
together so that they cannot be disunited, except 
by tearing asunder those small twigs of veins - 
Each individual lobule again is susceptible 
of further sub-division: some of these lesser bodies, 
thus formed, have been called 'lobulettes': but the
