Caption

De partu hominis (1551). Title page of a 16th-century edition of a work on childbirth by German physician Eucharius Rosslin (c.1470-1526). Rosslin's works included illustrations and helped improve midwifery standards that had been contributing to high rates of infant mortality. His writings were translated into many languages. His original work was written in 1513 in German under the title 'Der Rosengarten' (The Rose Garden). This edition, published in Frankfurt, is in Latin (the title translates as 'The Birth of Man'), and gives a Latin form of his name (Eucharius Rhodion).
