A Sett of Anatomical Tables, the Practice of Midwifery, by William Smellie, 1754. " Smellis is one of the most important obstetricians of all times. Through his A Treatise on the Theory and Practice of Midwifery ( 1752), his teaching was spread throughout the world. In 1754 he also published an atlas with 39 copperplates, which are superior to any previously published. The figures in natural size were drawn by Jan van Rymsdyk."
