Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 184214278X, Hardcover)

From early cave drawings to digital photographs, man has recorded his observations and impressions in images for about 3,000 years. Monumental in scope, containing more than 1000 illustrations, Obstetrics and Gynecology: A History and Iconography is the revised third edition of Iconographia Gyniatrica, the first comprehensive record of the history of obstetrics and gynecology through pictures. Drawing upon masterpieces of art, archeology, and medicine throughout the ages, this work is the most complete pictorial record of the art and science of obstetrics and gynecology ever published.

Uniquely qualified to produce this authoritative volume, Harold Speert, MD, is a world class researcher on the physiology of reproduction, the pathology of pregnancy, gynecologic cancer and the history of obstetrics and gynecology. From the clay vessels of early civilizations, the manuscripts and textbooks of the past thousand years, the paintings of the Renaissance and the modern world, the engravings of the nineteenth century, and the cartoons of the twentieth, the author presents a pictorial history of the profession.
