With 2 folded engraved plates. ** First French translation of White's classic A treatise on the management of pregnant and lying-in-women" (1773). G&M 6270: "White was the first to state clearly in a text on midwifery the necessity of absolute cleanliness in the lying-in chamber, the isolation of infected patients, and adequate ventilation. He instituted the principle of uterine drainage, placing his patients in a sitting position shortly after delivery using a special bed and chair (both depicted in this work). White was also the first after Hippocrates to make any substantial contributions towards the solution of the aetiology and management of puerperal fever". A nice copy of this rare work.
