A lovely large hard cover book with five colour plates of the female body including one 3D plate. Measures 43 cms x 23 cms. The cover is a little battered and the text has been sellotaped back into it at some stage. Most of the tape gone but evidence of its marks remain. The plates and index pages however are in good condition and all stitched together, although they have separated from the hard cover. The plates remain attached. There is one small tear on one plate but no paper missing.
Despite its publication date of 1942 the colours remain very bright and the index to the plates and written text are all complete. One of the plates is 3D with multiple flaps which open to reveal layers within the body cavities, including, heart, lungs, intestines and womb.
This would make a wonderful and rare gift for a doctor, nurse, or anyone interested in historical depictions of female physiology.
