London: c.1886. Hardcover. A sammelband of pamphlets on gynecological & obstetric subjects dating from 1856 to 1886. The compiler was Dr. Robert Barnes (1817-1907) who was a well known obstetric physician. During his career he lectured on midwifery at three of the great London medical schools, London Hospital, St. Thomas' Hospital and St. George's Hospital.
There is a presentation inscription on the pamphlet by Lazarewitch ("To Doctor Robert Barnes....") and a presentation tag at the foot of p. 295 of the Johnstone article, 'The Menstrual Organ', extracted from the journal of the British Gynoecological Society ("From Spottiswoode & co., New-Street Square, London, E.C. For Dr. F. Barnes").
"A leading teacher and gynaecologist in London, Barnes was a rival of James Matthews Duncan both in debates at the Obstetrical Society and in practice. One of the first to work at the minute pathology of obstetrics, he influenced the progress of obstetric medicine. His name has been attached to an obstetric instrument and a curve of the pelvis." "Barnes took a prominent part of the founding of the Obstetrical Society of London in 1858 and was president in 1865-6. But a dispute with the council of this society led him in 1884 to establish the British Gynaecological Society, of which he was honorary president until his death. The Justification of the schism was the antagonism of the old society to the performance of ovariotomy and other important operations by obstetricians. Barnes was one of the pioneers of operative gynaecology, and the cause he advocated gained the day." (D.N.B.)
