Williams Obstetrics

JAMA. 2010;304(4):474-475. doi:10.1001/jama.2010.1039

Since its first edition, published in 1904, Williams Obstetrics has been one of the mainstays of obstetrics textbooks. It was published by faculty at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine (starting with J. Whitridge Williams) until 1976, when faculty at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center assumed overall responsibility. As a medical student and house officer, I remember carrying the 13th edition with me during clinic sessions and when on call on labor and delivery. It was much smaller and lighter than the current edition, which—at almost 1400 pages and weighing several pounds—reflects the expanding knowledge base in the field.
