First Edition in Latin. Garrison-Morton 6018. Eisenmann's atlas of bipartite and double uterus. "A notable event in the [eighteenth] century was the publication of G. H. Eisenmann's Tabulae Anatomicae Quatuor Uteri in Strasbourg. His Atlas of the Uterus was an important advance in the history of gynecological anatomy" (O'Dowd and Philipp, History of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, p. 64, misstating the publication date as 1725). The work was published in a French edition the same year. Eisenmann was a professor of medicine and pathology at Strassburg. Hirsch gives the Tabulae as Eisenmann's only publication; OCLC and RLIN also cite several collections of dissertations under Eisenmann's name.
