About this Item

Contemporary quarter calf over cloth. An excellent copy from the library of Edgar Frank Mauer. First edition of this valuable work on midwifery, considered by Garrison an "extraordinary, exhaustive and accurate work, with full bibliographic data" (History of Medicine, p. 917). The book is divided into two parts; the first is a survey of the history of midwifery, and the second treats the history of the physiology, dietetics, pathology, and treatments of pregnancy, labor, and childbed, ending with a historical review of the various operations of midwifery. Fasbender (1843-1914), professor of medicine at the University of Berlin, remarks in his preface that he made an artificial division of the subject because mid-eighteenth century midwifery first became recognised as a separate branch of medical science, as distinct from general medicine and surgery. With the great advances which took place during that period in the practice of this specialty, both the science and art of obstetric medicine made considerable strides and these developments were accompanied by a large increase in the amount of literature dealing with the various divisions of the subject.
