Buchbeschreibung Lea and Blanchard, Philadelphia, 1850. Hardcover. Zustand: Good. New edition, revised. 720, 3-32 p. 24 cm. 49 b&w figures. Full leather. Spine stained, label worn, boards a bit scuffed. The translator of this treatise is better known in the English-speaking world than the French author. Unfortunately the American obstetrician Dr. Charles Delucena Meigs (1792 1869) was a man behind his time, not ahead of it; today he is chiefly remembered for his opposition to obstetrical anesthesia and to the idea that physicians' hands could transmit disease to their patients.
