Mauriceau (1637-1709), leading obstetrician of his day, introduced the practice of delivering his patients in bed instead of in the obstetrical chair. It was Mauriceau that Hugh Chamberlen attempted to sell the secret of his forceps; Ch. translated the Traité into English in 1672. This book established obstetrics as a science” (Garrison/Morton). – Zum Frontispiz führt Speert 274 aus: “The perce-crâne and tire-tête of Fr. M., instruments for perforating and extracting the fetal head”.
