A Manual of Midwifery 1915

By Thomas Watts Eden - J & A Churchill, London

Thomas Watts Eden FRCOG (8 May 1863 – 22 September 1946) was consulting obstetric physician to Charing Cross Hospital and consulting surgeon to both Queen Charlotte's Hospital and the Chelsea Hospital for Women. During the First World War he served as a major with the Royal Army Medical Corps. He was a founding fellow of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.

This book has my Nan's name written inside with the date Nov 1932, which from family research I know had a profound effect on her.

The book was originally printed in 1906 and this is a fourth edition printed in 1915.  It really is not for the tickle stomached as it has both black and white and coloured illustrations.

It does have some issues, a couple of pages have come loose, but then it is 105 years old.  The cover and binding are not bad and are still bound together. Page 51 is complete but has a tear.

It would make a brilliant present for a student of Midwifery.

I have said I will post it, I would prefer it to be collected, but please note I will not let it go unless you see it over the internet first (Skype or other means) and confirm you are happy with its condition.

Please take a good look at the pictures as they form part of the description. If you have any questions or would like to see more photos then please don't hesitate to get in touch or arrange to come and see it.
