These two richly illustrated volumes, written in the Ottoman language, provide a detailed insight in the modern practice of gynecology and obstetrics.
İsmail Derviş was an Ottoman medical doctor, who, in 1903, was assigned to give lectures on obstetrics and gynecology at the newly opened Faculty of Medicine in Damascus. Five years later, in 1908, he published his first book, Teşhis-i Emrâz-ı Nisâ (Diagnosis of Gynecological Diseases).
İsmail was the father of Suat Derviş (1904/5 – 1972), a prominent Turkish female author, feminist and political activist.
