[Japan: 1775 or shortly thereafter]. A manuscript copy, prepared shortly after the publication of the first edition in 1775, of this important work on obstetrics. The father of Genteki Kagawa, Genetsu (or Shigen) Kagawa (1699-1777), is famous for originating the practice of gynecology and obstetrics in Japan. His various writings on these subjects became the standard authority in Japan for at least a hundred years. In this work, the father and son provide diagnoses, treatments, and prescriptions for various symptoms that pregnant women suffer from before and after childbirth. The Kagawas have provided 48 case histories. Fine copy.
