An important and influential manual by the most important and influential French obstetrician of his day. J.L. Baudelocque (1745-1810) brought some innovations to the practice of obstetrics and, after the revolution, chaired the department of midwifery at the Ecole de Sante in Paris; supervising the training of midwives as well as overseeing the maternity clinic. The first edition of this work, published in 1775, was considerably smaller than this second edition and was not illustrated. (Blake p. 34)
