William Hunter, born in Scotland, was a London physician and obstetrician whose principal interest was in anatomy. This stunning atlas, containing life-sized steel engravings of the gravid uterus is one of the most elegant and accurate anatomical works in existence. Hunter spent more than twenty-five years preparing the atlas, employed artists to prepare the engravings at an enormous expense to himself, and entrusted the printing of the work to John Baskerville, the greatest English printer of the eighteenth century.
