Replete with reproductions of engravings and extracts from the pamphlets that preceded our popular tabloids, chronicles the change in attitudes about monstrous births from the Middle Ages, when they were considered divine visitations and perhaps indicative of witchcraft; through the Enlightenment, when they were sought out as curiosities; to the 19th century, when they became problems for medicine to investigate.
