Dr. Ricci presents a detailed history of the development of gynecology during the century between 1800 and 1900 A. D. Following a brief introduction entitled "Medical Trends of the Nineteenth Century," he considers the various diseases pertaining to women. The development of medical thought concerning each clinical entity is presented by means of summaries, publications, case histories and pertinent historical references. Thus he presents a complete story covering the pathology, diagnosis and treatment of each gynecologic condition, all of which is thoroughly authenticated by an extensive bibliography. This monumental textbook was made possible by the help of Edward W. Schiels of the Library of the New York Academy of Medicine together with the assistance of Elma Wadsworth. This scholarly treatise on the history of gynecology during the fruitful nineteenth century should be read by every specialist and become an important reference book in his library.
