Nicolaas Hoboken, 1632-1678 here presents a path-breaking work on the placenta.

Ideas concerning the placenta, its development, structure and function can be traced to antiquity. An issue of importance that was only resolved in the late-eighteenth to early-nineteenth century is that of the separate nature of the maternal and fetal placental circulations.

Buyers should note that this edition is notorious for having varying numbers of plates. Oxford's copy has IV, VIII-XII plates, as does the Huntingdon Library. The British Library copy has no plates!


The importance of the work is in "An Historical Study on Theories of the Placenta to 1900", Journal of the History of Medicine and Allied Sciences
(July 1959), pp. 360-374.
