The volume has the original pagination pp.1-199 and the writing is on the recto and verso throughout. It bears the bookplate of the Manchester Medical Society which indicates that the volume was donated to them by Clay in 1861 and was subsequently allocated the reference GO 2067 viz. their 1890 library catalogue. The name of the volume's creator appears to be in the top right corner of the title page but unfortunately the corner of the page has been lost and all that can be discerned now is the first name Thomas.
A contents page in the front indicates that the following topics are covered: introduction; bones of the pelvis; external organs of generation; internal organs of generation; menstruation in general; painful menstruation; obstructed menstruation [amenorrhoea]; conception; progress of uterine gestation; touching; process of labour; management of natural labours; difficult labours; forceps cases; application of the forceps [surgical instruments]; crotchet cases; preternatural presentations [breech presentation]; observations on turning; complex labours; diseases and management after delivery; diseases of children; on tying the navel string [umbilical cord]; retroverted uterus; dropsy of the perineum.
None of the lectures are individually numbered or dated and no attempt is made to indicate where each lecture begins and ends. However, clear subject headings are given at the top of every page and the content is divided by these subject headings rather than lecture numbers.
