520    The volume provides an archive of some of the most 
       beautiful illustrations ever made of the gravid uterus 
       with fetus and placenta, which will serve future 
       generations of investigators, educators, and students of 
       reproduction. The approximately two hundred figures from 
       over one hundred volumes included are from the late 
       fifteenth through the nineteenth century. For each author 
       whose work is depicted in this volume, we have used the 
       first edition or first illustrated edition. In the 
       commentary, each volume and illustration is placed in its 
       historical perspective, noting both the significance of 
       that image, but also some background on the life and work 
       of the author. For most of the works cited, there are 
       additional references for the reader who may wish to 
       explore these in greater depth. This volume is a unique 
       collection not only of these historical images, but also 
       their place in the development of scientific study.
