Lovely images for which I could locate no attributions--any ideas?

Maygrier, J.P. Nuove dimostrazioni di ostetricia (1831)
Good quality large pics from the whole treatise can be found here
(and more Morbid Anatomy goodness from the Polo Medico - immagini in Medicina parent site too!)

they look slightly different but they are probably by Jacques Pierre Maygrier, from "Nouvelles and Demonstrations and D'accouchemens" published in Paris, 1822.
