About this work
"This first visible state of conception, which resembles the lucid appearance of a drop of water, tending to coagulation, is correcly shewn in the first figure of the annexed plate, precisely in the state it was extracted from the uterus of a female, who died on the sixth day after contact with the male, and is now to be seen, preserved in spirits, in Rackstrow's valuable Museum, in Fleet-street, London."--Sibly, op. cit., p. 56
