About this Item

1785 SIGNED Treatise on Pregnancy Charles White Science of RACISM Birth OBGYN Medicine For the Royal Medical Society, from the author. Charles White was an 18th-century English physician who specialized in innovate contributions to obstetrics. He composed a highly influential book, Treatise on the Management of Pregnant and Lying-in Women, in which he discusses the benefits of natural childbirth. He recommends that delivery should not include any assistance until the baby s shoulders have emerged. However, his greatest advisement was to mothers to get back on their feet as soon as possibly post-delivery. Charles White, however, was not always highly regarded. He defended an extremely controversial topic in which he claimed that non-white, non-male humans were inferior and closer to primitive beings. (Meyer, p. 16). This view has developed into the pseudoscience of Scientific Racism. This late 18th-century, third edition printing of White s impressive treatise is beautifully rebound in professionally restored leather. An absolutely beautiful example!
