The work of Metlinger was destined to be widely read owing to rather fortuitous circumstances. It was a popular book and was reprinted many times; early in the sixteenth century it had its fortune linked with more than one other book, but chiefly with the work on obstetrics by Eucharius Röslin, or Rhodion, as he is sometimes called. This work, generally known as "De Partu Hominis," appeared in 1513 at Frankfort-am-Main with the title of "Der Swangern Frawen und Hebammen Rosegarten." In those days and often since, it has been called the "Rosegarten." It was largely made up of the work of the early masters and had a great vogue, not only in the original German, but in Latin, French, Dutch and English. Some of these editions included a more or less altered text of Metlinger's book on children, sometimes giving him credit and sometimes using the text anonymously.
