Preface

The following memoir combines in one publication two separate papers which deal with the processes involved in the imbedding of the human ovum. They have been associated because of the complementary nature of the evidence they afford regarding the histological characters and the activities of the trophoblast. Each breaks new ground, in respect that while the first paper embodies a description of the earliest phase of the human ovum yet recorded, the second deals with the earliest case of ovarian pregnancy hitherto reported.


The fact that the extremely early ovum described in the first paper is a unique specimen presenting features which have not up to the present been observed, necessitated profuse illustration both by coloured plates and photographic figures. This has rendered the production a costly one, and we desire to express our obligations to the Carnegie Trust of the Scottish Universities for giving us a grant towards the expenses of publication.
