About this Item

Davis, David D. (1777-1841). The principles and practice of obstetric medicine, in a series of systematic dissertations on midwifery . . . illustrated by numerous plates. 2 vols. xvi, 697 [1]; [4] [699]-1294pp. 69 (of 70) irregularly numbered lithographed plates (some double-page). Plate 37 present in duplicate, plate 38 lacking. Original cloth, spines somewhat worn and faded, Vol. I rear hinge splitting. A few spots, but very good. Ownership signature of Robert Ray Jr. dated 1855, 19th cent. bookplate of the New York Academy of Medicine. First Edition. Davis was the physician-accoucheur at the birth of Queen Victoria; he was the first to state that phlegmasia alba dolens is due to inflammation of the veins (1823; G-M 6273). The Principles and Practice of Obstetric Medicine, a comprehensive textbook, is Davis's most important work. Like his earlier Elements of Operative Midwifery (1825), it is beautifully illustrated with high-quality lithographed plates printed by the pioneering lithography firm of C. Hullmandel. OCLC and RLIN record copies in two volumes and copies in two volumes plus atlas. The work was originally issued in parts beginning in 1832; some copies are recorded with the title-page of Vol. I bearing that date. Wellcome II, p. 436. NUC NG 0541624 (11 copies noted). DNB.
