Upon an initial observation, the first thought that struck me was the size of this book. It is extremely small and light. An approximate measurement of the book’s size is 3x5 inches and it weighs about one pound. The book is called The Compleat and Experienced Midwife by Culpepper and was written in 1751, which makes it over 250 years old. The book is written in English and contains 213 pages (with only one picture) on how women should birth and nurture children.
