A Treatise on the Diseases and Special Hygine of Females
DE L'ISRE, Colombat; MEIGS, Charles D. (trans.)
The translator of this treatise is better known in the English-speaking world than the French author. Unfortunately the American obstetrician Dr. Charles Delucena Meigs (1792 1869) was a man behind his time, not ahead of it; today he is chiefly remembered for his opposition to obstetrical anesthesia and to the idea that physicians' hands could transmit disease to their patients.
