Discourses to Women on Medical Subjects Book dated 1895. This old book is extremely interesting and gives an insight on how things have changed since the olden days. Chapters look at Gynecology & Reproduction. I did get quite engrossed & amused while taking the photos reading about menstruation in young ladies, also known as ‘the terms, being unwell or the flower’ was a time when loose clothing garments must be worn equally distributed over the limbs and body. Much sleep and under no circumstance be allowed to read romance novels. The book is old and in much read condition. 346 pages of fascinating bedtime reading for all!
