Blue boards; rebacked. First and only edition of this scarce book that explores the merits of forceps versus the "turning" method to assist difficult deliveries. Despite their rather antiquated appearance to modern eyes, forceps were considered a major leap forward in obstetric practices. Their popularity was usurped only by the development of the Cesarean section in the twentieth century.Schwarzschild (1803-1878) was a German physician who came from a prominent Jewish family. He specialized in gynecology and in addition to his medical work was involved in a number of philanthropic pursuits, including the establishment of a Jewish hospital in Frankfurt.
