Castiglioni. Waller I, 8086.
Roederer (1727-1763) studied medicine in his native city of Strasbourg and later traveled extensively in Holland, England and Germany. In London he studied under England's greatest expounder of midwifery, William Smellie, and while studying in Germany he was under the tutelage of Albinus. Haller won for him the appointment as professor of anatomy, surgery and obstetrics (the first professor of obstetrics in Germany) at the University of Gottingen. This renowned atlas with its beautiful plates is considered his masterwork. "Outstanding among German obstetricians was Roederer who made notable anatomical and physiological studies of the fetal circulation, the position of the fetus, and the mechanism of delivery" (Castiglioni, A History of Medicine).
