About this Item: Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Prolapse of the Womb: With Especial Reference to the (So-Called) Hypertrophic Elongation of the Supra-Vaginal Portion of the Cervix, With Report of a Case The causes, both predisposing and exciting, are the same in each of these divisions of simple pro lapse, the difference between them being one solely of degree and not of kind. We may, therefore, study them together. Advanced age, laborious occupation, habitual constipation, and childbearing, predispose this con dition, whilst any cause which tends to increase the weight of the organ or to weaken its support will also prove an exciting factor. The symptoms occurring in this prolapse are manifestly present either in a greater or less degree in the other two, and may be considered better in that form of prolapsus which this paper is meant particularly to describe. The treatment consists in replacing the organ into its normal position and in sustaining it in the same by means of supports, in the shape of the various forms of pessaries in the market, which must be adapted to the needs of each particular case. The bowels should be carefully regulated, all heavy work and straining at stool avoided, astringent vaginal injections may be used with advantage, and rest in bed is often productive of good. Any complication which may exist, such as in?ammation, ulceration, or hypertrophy must receive attention.

About this Item: Antique print, titled: 'Fig. 2' - The stones removed from an old woman's uterus. She had a strange case of uterine prolapse (see Fig. 1 from the same series), and was operated on by Ruysch. Engraving on hand laid paper. Description: "Alle de Ontleed- Genees- en Heelkundige werken" by Frederic Ruysch, published in 1744.Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Cornelis Huyberts' after 'Frederik Ruysch'. Cornelis Huijberts (1669-1712) was art engraver and artist. He relocated to England in 1696. Huijberts engraved plates for works by Lairesse, and Leven en Dood der Doorluchtige Heeren Gebroeders C. en J. de Witt. Frederik Ruysch (Den Haag 1638 - Amsterdam 1731), was an anatomist, zoologist and botanist. He was the son of a government functionary, and trained as the pupil of a druggist. His interest in anatomy led him to study under Sylvius in Leiden, where he graduated on pleuritis in 1664. Ruysch devised a new method of preservation of specimens: arterial embalming using a secret recipe. Using this method he created a Cabinet, a museum in five rooms, where his specimens were exhibited. 'Ruysch' cabinet' or museum was described as a perfect necropolis, all the inhabitants of which were asleep and ready to speak as soon as they were reawakened', and attracted many visitors. His capacity for keen observation and his fabulous skill in injection made him the founder of eighteenth century anatomy. The illustrations are of a very high artistic merit. 'He gave private courses in anatomy to foreign students and devoted himself throughout his life to making anatomical preparations. Ruysch drew on his art not only for strict medical science but also for expression and fantasy. He often made up preparations in a rather romantic, dramatic way. He prepared as an example the corpse of a child as if it were alive so that Peter the Great was inclined to kiss it. In 1715 he announced the sale of his collection. No buyers presented themselves before 1717, when Peter the Great bought it for 30.000 guilders. It was carefully packed and transported by boat to Russia. The tale that the collection was destroyed by sailers drinking the embalming fluid seems not to be true, or at least only partly so. Condition: Excellent, given age. Two original folds, as issued. A small stain in the top margin (just outside platemark), and a small crease in the lower right margin corner. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully. Storage location: A295-02 The overall size is ca. 12.4 x 10.9 inch. The image size is ca. 9.8 x 5.8 inch. The overall size is ca. 31.4 x 27.6 cm. The image size is ca. 24.9 x 14.7 cm. Seller Inventory # 57539

About this Item: Antique print, titled: 'Tab. IIII.' - 1) womb of a woman impregnated just days before her death; 2) uterine prolapse; 3) cervix uteri. Engraving on hand laid paper. Description: "Alle de Ontleed- Genees- en Heelkundige werken" by Frederic Ruysch, published in 1744.Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Cornelis Huyberts' after 'Frederik Ruysch'. Cornelis Huijberts (1669-1712) was art engraver and artist. He relocated to England in 1696. Huijberts engraved plates for works by Lairesse, and Leven en Dood der Doorluchtige Heeren Gebroeders C. en J. de Witt. Frederik Ruysch (Den Haag 1638 - Amsterdam 1731), was an anatomist, zoologist and botanist. He was the son of a government functionary, and trained as the pupil of a druggist. His interest in anatomy led him to study under Sylvius in Leiden, where he graduated on pleuritis in 1664. Ruysch devised a new method of preservation of specimens: arterial embalming using a secret recipe. Using this method he created a Cabinet, a museum in five rooms, where his specimens were exhibited. 'Ruysch' cabinet' or museum was described as a perfect necropolis, all the inhabitants of which were asleep and ready to speak as soon as they were reawakened', and attracted many visitors. His capacity for keen observation and his fabulous skill in injection made him the founder of eighteenth century anatomy. The illustrations are of a very high artistic merit. 'He gave private courses in anatomy to foreign students and devoted himself throughout his life to making anatomical preparations. Ruysch drew on his art not only for strict medical science but also for expression and fantasy. He often made up preparations in a rather romantic, dramatic way. He prepared as an example the corpse of a child as if it were alive so that Peter the Great was inclined to kiss it. In 1715 he announced the sale of his collection. No buyers presented themselves before 1717, when Peter the Great bought it for 30.000 guilders. It was carefully packed and transported by boat to Russia. The tale that the collection was destroyed by sailers drinking the embalming fluid seems not to be true, or at least only partly so. Condition: Very good, given age. Original fold, as issued. Very faint stain in the lower margin. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully. Storage location: A295-07 The overall size is ca. 9 x 10.8 inch. The image size is ca. 6.4 x 8.2 inch. The overall size is ca. 22.8 x 27.4 cm. The image size is ca. 16.2 x 20.8 cm.
