Anatomia uteri humani gravidi tabulis illustrata (1774)

In his preface, Hunter states that many of the drawings were first prepared in 1751, and William Smellie refers to them in his Sett of anatomical tables in 1754. A majority of the drawings were executed by Jan van Rymsdyk (fl. 1750-1788), and a great number of engravers participated in the project. Hunter's text for the illustrations were later published after his death, expanded and edited by his nephew Mathew Baillie in 1794 under the title, An anatomical description of the human gravid uterus.
