Observations on an Extraordinary Case of Ruptured Uterus.
London: Printed for J. Johnson, 1785. First edition, 74pp., recent quarter calf, marbled boards, red morocco title label lettered in gilt to spine. Andrew Douglas (1735/6–1806), physician and man-midwife, was born in Teviotdale, Roxburghshire, and educated at the University of Edinburgh. He began work as a surgeon in the navy in 1756, and later practised at Deal before returning to Edinburgh in 1775 where he graduated MD. He settled in London with the intention of practising midwifery, and was for several years physician to the Charity for Delivering Poor Married Women at their Own Houses.—(ODNB). This pamphlet deals with a case where "he succeeded in the delivery of a child from the cavity of the abdomen, and the woman recovered; from whence he infers, that those accidents, which admit the child to escape through a rupture of the uterus, are not necessarily fatal, and that the delivery is to be effected, without having recourse to the caesarean operation, with more ease than has been imagined."—Goldson, An Extraordinary Case. Wellcome II, p. 481.
