Bateman completed the morphological system of classifying skin diseases which his teacher, Robert Willan, left half finished at his death. In 1814 Bateman obtained the copyright to the 34 plates for Willan's On Cutaneous Diseases. To these plates, which he had refurbished, he added a new set of 38 plates depicting the later genera of dermatoses, which had never before been illustrated. Bateman's atlas of skin diseases was published in twelve fascicles of six plates each, issued quarterly from 1814 to 1817.
