Edo Nihonbashi: suharayamohee, 1775. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. An interesting 18th century handwritten Japanese medicinal work on obstetrics. In 1765 Kagawa Genetsu published 'Sanron,' the first Japanese book on obstetrics. In 1775 Kagawa Genteki wrote 'Sanron Yoku' as a supplement and revision with case histories and illustrations.
