Report on the pandemic of influenza 1918-19.

London: H. M. Stationery Office, 1920.

Reports on Public Health and Medical Subjects, No. 4. The most widespread and serious pandemic of influenza occurred in 1918-19. It spread throughout Europe, Russia, Canada, S. America, New Zealand, Australia, Africa, India, China, and Japan. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,

"The 1918 influenza pandemic was the most severe pandemic in recent history. It was caused by an H1N1 virus with genes of avian origin. Although there is not universal consensus regarding where the virus originated, it spread worldwide during 1918-1919.  In the United States, it was first identified in military personnel in spring 1918. It is estimated that about 500 million people or one-third of the world’s population became infected with this virus. The number of deaths was estimated to be at least 50 million worldwide with about 675,000 occurring in the United States" (https://www.cdc.gov/flu/pandemic-resources/1918-pandemic-h1n1.html, accessed 3-2020).

"The amount of bony matter annually secreted to form antlers of the larger deer is enormous, antlers of the Red Deer having been obtained which weigh upwards of 74 lbs. while those of the extinct Irish deer must have probably scaled 100 lbs during life. 'In weight the Elk will scale from 900 to 1400 pounds and the antler may weigh as much as 60 pounds. The largest span of an Elk antler on record is in possession of the Duke of Westminister.

Women as army surgeons. Being the history of the Women's Hospital Corps in Paris, Wimereux & Endell Street, September 1914 - October 1919. By Flora Murray.

London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1920.

Together with Louisa Garrett Anderson (1873-1943), to whom the book was dedicated, Murray co-founded the Women's Hospital for Children in 1912. The hospital provided health care for working-class children of the area, and also provided women doctors their only opportunity to gain clinical experience in pediatrics in London; the hospital's motto was Deeds not Words. In WWI Murray and Anderson served in France with the Women's Hospital Corps (WHC), establishing military hospitals for the French Army in Paris and Wimereux. Their proposals were at first rejected by the British authorities, but eventually the WHC became established at the Endell Street Military Hospital, Holborn, London staffed entirely by women, from chief surgeon to orderlies.

Medical life. Edited by Victor Robinson. (214 issues were published, beginning with vol. 27 and ending with vol. 45 because Robinson considered this a merger of five earlier medical periodicals.)

New York, 19201938.

"the first monthly journal in English to be devoted to the history of medicine. Robinson opened the pages of Medical Life to eminent historians and beginners. A number of outstanding European medical historians contributed papers and served on its editorial board. Among them were Max Neuburger, Karl Sudhoff, Henry E. Sigerist, Arturo Castiglioni, John D. Comrie, and Wilhelm Haberling….Victor Robinson was a member of the generation that created medical history in this country as we know it today. He banged the drums for medical history, he blew its horn, he was a propagandist for medical history. He aroused interest in the subject and made it possible for interested individuals to participate in the medical history movement. He accomplished this chiefly through the channels of communication which he created, chiefly Medical Life.” (George Rosen, Victor Robinson: A romantic medical historian. [Philadelphia 1958]).

The prophylactic forceps operation.

Am. J. Obstet. Gynecol., 1, 34-44, 1920.

DeLee's advocacy of prophylactic forceps delivery made forceps deliveries more common. It remains probably his most controversial contribution to obstetrics.

"At a meeting of the American Gynecological Society in 1920, DeLee sparked controversy when he presented a paper advocating for the use of a systematic approach to childbirth for physicians, including the use of forceps and episiotomy even in women who had no labor complications.[3] DeLee's "prophylactic forceps operation" consisted of several steps: scopolamine injections in the first stage of labor, ether anesthesia in the next stage, then episiotomy and forceps delivery. Ergot was used in the subsequent manual extraction of the placenta.[10] DeLee reasoned that the episiotomy prevented perineal tears which could cause complications like uterine prolapse and vesicovaginal fistula. He said that the early use of forceps would avoid pressure from the pelvic bones against a baby's head, thus preventing complications like epilepsy and cerebral palsy; DeLee said that fatal complications occurred in 4–5% of labors managed with the traditional conservative approach.[11] Though DeLee said that such interventions should only be carried out by a well-equipped physician specialist, John Whitridge Williams and other prominent obstetricians criticized DeLee sharply. They felt that DeLee was being too aggressive by removing a baby before complications occurred; DeLee's colleagues preferred to be conservative and to manage complications as they arose.

"Fatigue was the most universal complaint of pilots. Major Birley attributed its occurrence to the bombardment of the senses by the constant stream of stimuli in the air, many of which were of a peculiar character.75 Flyers were observed to stagger from aircraft to make their meticulous reports, which were often a source of conflict as no-one could agree upon what had occurred. Overwhelming tiredness led to frayed tempers and depressed spirits, and the idea uppermost in minds was to lie down and sleep. The repetition of this work over any length of time led to the deterioration of mental and physical wellbeing, inefficiency in the air, and ultimately the shortening of the active service period.76 " (Lynsey Shaw Cobden, "The nervous flyer: Nerves, Flying and the First World War," Br.

"About the William Osler Letter Collection

"Sir William Osler (1849-1919) is one of the most renowned and respected physicians in medical history. Born in Bond Head, Ontario in 1849, he studied medicine at McGill University and went on to teach at McGill and the University of Pennsylvania. In 1889 he was one of the "Big Four" founders of the Johns Hopkins Medical School and Hospital. He became Regius Professor of Medicine at Oxford University in 1905 and was knighted in 1911 in recognition of his contributions to medical science and teaching.

"Harvey Cushing (1869-1939) was a pioneering neurosurgeon and close friend to Sir William Osler. Upon Osler's death in 1919, Dr. Cushing undertook to write his biography at Lady Osler’s request. Between 1920 and 1924, Dr. Cushing collected over 7 000 letters to and from Sir William, notes and excerpts from manuscripts. Many of these were copied and the originals returned to their owners. In 1925 Cushing published the two-volume Life of Sir William Osler, which won the Pulitzer Prize the following year. Dr. Cushing later donated his research material to the Osler Library. 

"These materials, especially the letters, are an important source for Oslerian research. This online index provides access to information about materials that was previously only available to on-site visitors. It is intended to increase awareness and use of this rich collection.

"The letters and other documents indexed on this site are part of a larger collection of Oslerian material in the Harvey Cushing Fonds (P417). Photos collected by Cushing and others are available in digital format online at the William Osler Photo Collection. The index also includes original Osler material from other archival collections and fonds, including the Sir William Osler Collection (P100), the Malloch Family Fonds (P107), and the Maude Abbott Collection (P111)."

The evolution of modern medicine. A series of lectures delivered at Yale University on the Silliman Foundation in April, 1913.

New Haven, CT: Yale University Press, 1921.

The final text of these lectures, which Osler characterized as "an aeroplane flight over the progress of medicine through the ages," remained unfinished at Osler’s death, and Osler requested in his will that this and his other unfinished works not be published. In spite of this, the work was prepared for the press by Harvey Cushing, Edward Streeter, Fielding Garrison, and Leonard Mackall, and published two years after Osler's death. It remains one of the most interesting short histories of medicine, written in Osler’s usual charming style, and is still one of the best books with which to commence the study of medical history.

This was the first text that my historically-oriented physician father suggested I read regarding the history of medicine when I was about ten years old. Six and a half decades later I cannot remember how much of the text I comprehended at the time, but I recall that it made a favorable impression. We might say that it began to lay the groundwork for what came later.... - JMN.

Mortality statistics 1919. Twentieth annual report.

Washington, DC: Government Printing Office, 1921.

From "Influenza and pneumonia (All forms)" p. 28:

"In the later part of 1918 a pandemic of influenza swept over the country and did not fully spend its force until well into 1919....

"In the registration area (exclusive of Hawaii) the 189,326 deaths from influenza and pneumonia (all forms) in 1919 correspond to a rate of 222.4 per 100,000 population as against 479,038 deaths in 1918, with a rate of 588.7. Fully 79.8 per cent of the mortality from these causes in 1918 occurred in the last four months of the year, and as the pandemic continued into 1919, fully 83.2 per cent of the mortality from these causes in 1919 occured in the first six months of the year...."

Organon der Heilkunst. 6th edition.

Leipzig: Verlag von Dr. Willmar Schwabe, 1921.

Hahnemann completed his work for the 6th edition in 1842, a year before his death. After Hahnemann’s death in 1843, his widow, Mélanie Hahnemann, had a hand-written copy made of Hahnemann’s volume and notes. In 1920, James Ward and William Boericke, American homeopaths based in San Francisco, purchased both the interleaved volume and the manuscript copy. Richard Haehl, a German homeopath, acted as their agent. Haehl used the hand-written copy as the basis for the 6th edition, published in Germany in 1921. The interleaved volume was sent to Boericke in San Francisco, and he used it as the basis of the 1922 English-language edition.

Die epidemische Encephalitis. (Monographien aus dem Gesamtgebiete der Neurologie und Psychiatrie. Bd. 30).

Berlin: Springer, 1922.

Felix Stern was the leading German specialist in encephalitis lethargica . No national statistics for this disease, first described in Vienna in 1916, were kept in Germany. For this reason, the data collected by Stern at the University Nerve Clinic in Göttingen, both in the first edition of 1922 and the enlarged second edition of 1928, is fundamental as a record of the epidemic that ended in 1926 in Germany. Stern estimated that at least 60,000 people contracted the disease in Germany.

"The exact cause of Merrick's deformities is unclear. The dominant theory throughout much of the 20th century was that Merrick suffered from neurofibromatosis type I. In 1986, a new theory emerged that he had Proteus syndrome. In 2001, it was proposed that Merrick had suffered from a combination of neurofibromatosis type I and Proteus syndrome. DNA tests conducted on his hair and bones have proven inconclusive," Wikipedia article on Joseph Merrick, accessed 7-28-2016.)

Handbuch der Zoologie / Handbook of Zoology. Eine Naturgeschichte der Stämme des Tierreichs / A natural history of the phyla of the animal kingdom. Gegründet von / Founded by Willy Kükenthal. 8 vols., each expanded into many parts.

Berlin: Walter de Gruyter, 19232005.

The Handbuch der Zoologie/Handbook of Zoology was founded by Willi Kükenthal in Berlin, and treated the complete animal kingdom from single cell organisms to mammals in eight thematic volumes: Volume I: Protozoa, Porifera, Colenteratea, Mesozoa (1925); Volume 2: Worms (1933/34); Volume 3: Arthropoda ex. Insecta (1927/1932); Volume 4: Arthopoda: Insecta; Volume 5: Solenogastres, Mollusca, Echinoderma (1925); Volume 6: Pisces / Amphibia (1930); Volume 7: Reptilia / Aves (1931); Volume VIII Mammalia. As knowledge in these subjects increased, all volumes were later broken into several parts, and the set eventually included about 100 printed volumes, with the final volumes appearing in 2005.

In April 2017 a complete list of printed volumes published, including authors, titles, dates, and pagination, was available from degruyter.com at this link. The publishers also announced that:

"Beginning in 2010 the Handbook of Zoology will be restructured and offered additionally as a database (Zoology Online) which can be easily searched and rapidly updated. The eight thematic volumes will be replaced with smaller and more flexible groupings that reflect the current state of phylogenetic knowledge. Faster publication times through online-prepublication, reference linking, forward linking and multimedia presentations will make the Handbook of Zoology highly attractive to both authors and users."

Handbook of Zoology Online was available from degruyter.com at this link.

Traumatic shock.

New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1923.

"In the fall of 1916, before the United States entered World War I, the National Research Council named Cannon a member of a committee on traumatic shock. Later he joined the Harvard University Hospital Unit. On his way to France in May 1917, he stopped in London and arranged with Fletcher, first secretary of the Medical Research Committee, to join the group of physicians and surgeons of the British Expeditionary Forces who were dealing with shock cases at the Casualty Clearing Station at Béthune. . . . Initially Cannon and his associates in the field concentrated their therapeutic efforts on treating the acidosis that accompanies shock. Later they recognized that the acidosis was merely a secondary phenomenon, the result of the inadequacy of tissue perfusion. In 1923 Cannon summarized his wartime experience in Traumatic Shock" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography).

A classic work on muscle tone and posture, a subject upon which Magnus spent many years of study. He demonstrated among other things that the labyrinth is the one sense organ entirely concerned with posture and equilibrium. In this book Magnus also described the reflexes involved in mammal posture. The Magnus & De Kleijn reflexes are named after Magnus and his colleague Adriaan de Kleijn (1883–1949). The head and neck reflexes of mammals cause the body to follow automatically when the head moves. He also researched the reflexes of the intestines and phenomena such as motion sickness.

Über Induktion von Embryonalanlagen durch Implantation artfremder Organisatoren.

This was Mangold's thesis. Spemann designed the experiment, and Mangold performed the work, and was the co-discoverer of the "organizer," the chemical that directs the embryonic development of tissues and organs. Spemann added his name to Mangold's paper over her objections. Spemann was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1935 for discovery of the “organizer” in animal development. Because Mangold died at the early age of 26 when the gas heater in her apartment exploded, she was unable to share the Nobel Prize with Spemann. Digital facsimile of the English translation by Viktor Hamburger is available at www.ijdb.ehu.es/web/descarga/paper/11291841.

Proiskhozhedenie Zhizni.

Moscow: Mosckovskii Rabochii, 1924.

Oparin’s central thesis was that the first organisms to emerge in the anaerobic environment of the primitive Earth must have been heterotrophic bacteria. He proposed that life had been preceded by a lengthy period of abiotic syntheses and accumulation of organic compounds that had led to the accumulation he called the primordial soup. Reprinted and translated in J. D. Bernal, The Origin of Life, London: Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1967. Also translated by NASA as The origin and development of life (NASA TTF-488) Washington, D.C., 1968.

Die Klimate der geologischen Vorzeit.

Berlin: Gebrüder Bornträger, 1924.

Translated as The climates of the geological past. Die Klimate der geologischen Vorzeit. Reproduction of the original German edition and complete English translation. Faksimile-Nachdruck der deutschen Originalausgabe und komplette englische Neuübersetzung. Edited by Jörn Thiede; Karin Lochte; Angelika Dummermuth. Translated by Bernard Oelkers. Stuttgart, Schweizerbart, 2015.

"Wegener is best known for his theory of continental drift (The Origin of the Continents and Oceans, 1915). Less widely known, but equally important, are the studies he conducted on the climates of the past (with his colleague and father-in-law, Wladimir Köppen), which they jointly published (this book). Only one edition of the book was published, but unfortunately, all – save a few private copies – were destroyed during the second World War, rendering the book essentially unavailable. 
This English translation ... includes the ‘Supplements and Corrections’ by ­Wladimir Köppen to this book, published in 1940, shortly before his death and a decade after Alfred Wegener’s untimely death on Greenland. The translation (and the facsimile) have both been enhanced by subject indices, which the original book was lacking.

"The discussion of the course and causal relationship of climates and climate change in the geological past are of principal scientific interest. Important elements of the discussions herein stem from the close collaboration with Milutin Milankovitch (who contributed entire sections of text, but is not named as an author). Building on the principles of the Milankovitch frequencies allowed Köppen and Wegener – for the first time, early in the last century – to establish a precise time scale of Late Cenozoic glacial-inter­glacial cycles. More recently, the orbital parameters originally calculated by Milankovitch were refined using time series data from deep-sea sediments and ice cores. Furthermore, Milankovitch’s cycles may be extrapolated into the future to predict climate change. This very book, in which Köppen and Wegener roll out their theory, is therefore an important publication which has early on shaped our understanding of how climate has evolved and continuously evolves in the course of time."

The surgical treatment of mitral stenosis: Experimental and clinical studies.

Arch. Surg., 9, 689-821, 1924.

The first successful operations on the mitral valves, published in a paper of monograph length. As Surgeon-in-Chief of Peter Bent Brigham Hospital, under whom Beck, Cutler, and Levine worked, Harvey Cushing reported, "Dr. Beck has largely been engaged during the fall semester assisting Dr. Cutler in his experiments concerned with the future operative surgery of cardiac derangements. It is to the great credit of the Brigham Hospital that the first successful operation for mitral stenosis to be recorded has been the outcome of this work. Unless all signs fail, were are on the eve of a new surgical specialty of the great promise- a specialty dealing with the chronic disorders of the heart" (Cushing, 10th Annual Report of the Surgeon-in-Chief [1924)].

Die Cytoarchitektonik der Hirnrinde des erwachsenen Menschen. 1 vol. and atlas.

Vienna: Julius Springer, 1925.

This work consisted of textbook of more than 800 pages and an atlas with 112 large-sized microphotographic plates of the cortex. The textbook contained detailed descriptions of their studies and an introduction to the history of cytoarchitectonic research. With their atlas, von Economo and Koskinas hoped to create a basis for future brain research and the localization of brain functions since they assumed that cytoarchitectonic differences reflect functional differences. They used letters to categorize the architecture, e.g., "F" for areas of the frontal lobe.

"The exceptionally high-resolution photographs of the human cerebral cortex presented here are a unique and lasting contribution to neuroanatomy" (Larry W. Swanson). In their chapter on the microscopic structure of the cerebral cortex, Clarke and O’Malley (1996) wrote that, “C. von Economo and G.N. Koskinas produced a monumental work on cortical areas (Die Cytoarchitektonik…), based on the work of Brodmann but identifying more than twice his number of areas [107]; it helped to dispel some of the confusion produced by the Vogt’s multiplicity of areas.” (p. 456). Abridged English translation, 1929. Complete English translation, edited, and published in large folio format, with additional appendix material and the plates reproduced full size as Atlas of cytoarchitectonics of the adult human cerbral cortex by Lazaros C. Triarhou (Basel: Karger, 2008).

Die Handschrift des Schnitt- und Augenarztes Caspar Stromayr in Lindau im Bodensee: In der Lindauer Handschrift (P.1.46) vom 4. Juli 1559. Mit einer historischen Einführung und Wertung von Walter von Brunn.

Berlin: Idra, 1925.

Stroymayr's manuscript was discovered in Lindau in 1909, and remained unpublished until the above edition, which reproduced his drawings in color. Like Bartisch (No. 5817) Stromayr specialized in hernia repair and eye surgery; he was advanced in his concept of hernia. His unique manuscript contains 186 large colored paintings of surgical instruments and procedures. The portrait-like illustrations of eye diseases at the end of this work bear a striking resemblance to the woodcuts in Bartisch.

Hunain ibn Ishaq über die syrischen und arabischen Galen-Übersetzungen zum ersten mal Herausgegeben und Überzetzt von G. Bergsträsser.

Abhandlungen für die Kunde des Morgenlandes, 17, No. 2, 1925.

Various writings of Galen survived through Arabic and Syriac translations rather than the original Greek. In the ninth century the Assyrian Christian physician and translator into Arabic and Syriac Hunain ibn Ishaq (Abu Zayd Hunayn ibn Ishaq al-Ibadi), compiled a bibliography of his translations into Arabic. Hunain ibn Ishaq also wrote a letter to one of his patrons discussing his translation process. In February 2015 the Al-Islam.org website stated that Hunain, who was known as Johannitius Onan to Latin readers, "translated 95 works of Galen from Greek to Syriac and 99 into Arabic." This would represented a significant percentage of Galen's output. In 1925 G. Bergsträsser published the Arabic text of Hunain ibn Ishaq's bibliographical work from a manuscript he found in Constantinople. Digital facsimile from the Internet Archive at this link.

"The book reached its eighth edition in 1952, and there were seven reprints; a revised, ninth edition was published in 1956, after Runting's death, and there were several American editions as well as one in Spanish. The Lancet had printed an article by Runting on the treatment of corns in 1927, and in many of his other writings Runting built on the work of Lewis Durlacher (1792–1864), developing the use of silver nitrate, the treatment of verrucae, toenail problems, the rational approach to the treatment of corns, and the importance of considering ‘the chiropodist's handicap—the shoe’ " (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, accessed 10-2017).

Arrowsmith.

New York: Harcourt, Brace & Company, 1925.

"This novel has been inspirational for several generations of pre-medical and medical students. There is much agonizing along the way concerning career and life decisions. While detailing Arrowsmith's pursuit of the noble ideals of medical research for the benefit of mankind and of selfless devotion to the care of patients, Lewis throws many less noble temptations and self-deceptions in Arrowsmith's path. The attractions of financial security, recognition, even wealth and power distract Arrowsmith from his original plan to follow in the footsteps of his first mentor, Max Gottlieb, a brilliant but abrasive bacteriologist.

"In the course of the novel Lewis describes many aspects of medical training, medical practice, scientific research, scientific fraud, medical ethics, public health, and of personal/professional conflicts that are still relevant today. Professional jealousy, institutional pressures, greed, stupidity, and negligence are all satirically depicted, and Arrowsmith himself is exasperatingly self-involved. But there is also tireless dedication, and respect for the scientific method and intellectual honesty...."

"The book's climax deals with Arrowsmith's discovery of a phage that destroys bacteria and his experiences as he faces an outbreak of bubonic plague on a fictional Caribbean island."

"Martin Arrowsmith shares some biographical elements with Félix d'Herelle, who is identified in the novel as a co-discoverer of the bacteriophage and represented as having beaten Arrowsmith into publication with his results" (selections from Wikipedia article on Arrowsmith, accessed 4-2018).

The mental growth of the pre-school child: A psychological outline of normal development from birth to the sixth year, including a system of development diagnosis.

New York: Macmillan, 1925.

"The Maturational Theory of child development was introduced in 1925[1] by Dr. Arnold Gesell, an American educator, pediatrician and clinical psychologist whose studies focused on "the course, the pattern and the rate of maturational growth in normal and exceptional children"(Gesell 1928).[2] Gesell carried out many observational studies during more than 50 years working at the Yale Clinic of Child Development, where he is credited as a founder. Gesell and his colleagues documented a set of behavioral norms that illustrate sequential & predictable patterns of growth and development. Gesell asserted that all children go through the same stages of development in the same sequence, although each child may move through these stages at their own rate [3] Gesell's Maturational Theory has influenced child-rearing and primary education methods since it was introduced.[4][5] (Wikipedia article on Gesell's Maturational Theory, accessed 05-2018).

"In 1925, Hermann Blumgart performed the first diagnostic procedure using radioactive indicators on humans; this first is well recognized. Less well recognized is the fact that Blumgart and his coworker Otto C. Yens, then a medical student, developed the first instrumentation used in a diagnostic procedure involving radioactive indicators. The instrumentation, a modified Wilson cloud chamber, turned out to be the detector most suitable for their purpose. Blumgart also showed remarkable foresight in outlining the requirements both for a satisfactory indicator (tracer) and for a satisfactory detector—requirements that still hold true today. The Blumgart–Yens modified cloud chamber was the birth of nuclear medicine instrumentation" (http://jnm.snmjournals.org/content/44/8/1362.long, accessed 03-2018).

Collectionum medicarum reliquae, libri 1-VIII, libri IX-XVI, libri XXIV-XXV, XLIII-XLVIII, libri XLIX-L, libri incerti ecologae medicamentorum. Synopsis ad Eustathium, Libri ad Eunapium. Edited by Johannes Raeder. 5 vols.

Leipzig & Berlin: B. G. Teubner, 19261933.

Contains selections from the writings of physicians, the originals of some of whose works no longer exist, and who would have been forgotten, but for the compilations of Oribasius. Writers included are Agathinus, Antyllus, Apollonius, Archigenes, Athenaeus, Ctesias, Dieuches, Diocles, Dioscorides, Herodotus, Justus, Lycus, Menemachus, Mnesitheus Atheniensis, Mnesitheus Cyzicenus, Oribasius, Philagrius, Philotimus, Philumenus, Sabinus, Xenocrates, Zopyrus. 

"Born in Pergamum, he [Oribasius] studied medicine at Alexandria under Zeno of Cyprus, and practised in Asia Minor. He became the personal physician of Julian, who took him to Gaul (355). Closely involved in the proclamation of Julian as emperor (361), Oribasius accompanied him until his death in Mesopotamia (363). Banished for a time to foreign courts, Oribasius was soon recalled by the emperor Valens and continued to practise his profession until an advanced age. His principal works are a collection of excerpts from Galen—now lost—and the Collectiones medicae, a vast compilation of excerpts from earlier medical writers, from Alcmaeon of Croton (c.500 bc) to Oribasius' contemporaries Philagrius and Adamantius. Both of these works were written at the behest of Julian. Of the 70 (or 72) books of the Collectiones only 25 survive entire; but the rest can be in part reconstructed from the Synopsis ad Eustathium, and the treatise Ad Eunapium, epitomes of the Collectiones in 9 books and 4 books respectively made by Oribasius himself, and from various excerpts and summaries, some of which are still unpublished. Oribasius was a convinced pagan, and his medical encyclopedia is a product of the vain effort of Julian and his circle to recall the classical past. For the medical historian its importance lies in the large number of excerpts from lost writers—particularly those of the Roman period—which it preserves, usually with a precise reference to the source; Oribasius adds nothing of his own. His work was constantly quoted and excerpted by early Byzantine medical writers, the Synopsis and the Ad Eunapium were twice translated into Latin in Ostrogothic Italy, and Syriac and Arabic translations of portions of Oribasius' work form one of the principal channels by which knowledge of Greek medicine reached the Islamic world" (Robert Browning & Vivian Nutton, Oxford Reference; http://www.oxfordreference.com/view/10.1093/oi/authority.20110803100254300)

Anatomies de Mondino dei Luzzi et de Guido de Vigevano. Par Ernest Wickersheimer.

Paris: E. Droz, 1926.

Facsimile of the 1478 edition of Mondino's Anothomia along with the text and 18 plates from Guido de Vigevano's (fl. 14th century) Anathomia. Vigevano's manuscript, completed in 1345, is MS. 569 in the Musée Condé at the Chateau de Chantilly. In his Anathomia Vigevano discusses the usefulness of using drawings for the demonstration of anatomy as well as the church's attitude toward dissection of the human body. According to Wickersheimer, the Papal Bull of Boniface VIII in 1300 was not aimed at curtailing dissection, but was intended to halt the practice of boiling and dismembering the bodies of crusaders who had died away from home for easier transportation back to Europe. Vigevano's plates are among the earliest anatomical drawings of the time and are intended to show the techniques of dissection and a limited number of diagnostic techniques.

Medical report of the Hamilton Rice Seventh expedition to the Amazon In conjunction with the Department of Tropical Medicine of Harvard University, 1924-1925. By Richard P. Strong, George C. Shattuck, Joseph C. Bequaert, and Ralph E. Wheeler.

Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 1926.

"The Hamilton Rice Seventh Expedition to Amazonia was undertaken [under the leadership of Richard Pearson Strong] partly for general geographical exploration and partly for medical investigation in a section of the Amazon Valley which comprises the greater portion of the most tropical parts of Brazil. The expedition was equipped with complete laboratory apparatus and had further help in various hospitals and clinics, particularly in Mangos and Para. The report of the work is divided into three sections: Part I describes the climate and inhabitants of the country and gives full details about various tropical diseases; Part II discusses the medical and economic entomology of the region; and the third part summarizes briefly the various medical and biological observations made by George Shattuck on the Branco, the Uraricuera, and the Parima Rivers, and adds three other chapters on general biology. A very large number of full-page illustrations and cuts in the text will be of great value to all scientists. Certain sections, intended primarily for workers not especially interested in entomology, have been written with as few technical terms and details as was possible under the circumstances" (publisher)

This was the first suggestion that inherited traits might be altered or controlled, and it created a sensation: “Man’s most precious substance, the hereditary material which he could pass on to his offspring, was now potentially in his control. X rays could speed up evolution,’ if not in practice at least in the headlines. Like the discoveries of Einstein and Rutherford, Muller’s tampering with a fundamental aspect of nature provoked the public awe.“(Carlson). Muller was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1946 for his work on the genetic effects of radiation.

Yens, then a medical student, developed the first instrumentation used in a diagnostic procedure involving radioactive indicators. The instrumentation, a modified Wilson cloud chamber, turned out to be the detector most suitable for their purpose. Blumgart also showed remarkable foresight in outlining the requirements both for a satisfactory indicator (tracer) and for a satisfactory detector--requirements that still hold true today. The Blumgart-Yens modified cloud chamber was the birth of nuclear medicine instrumentation" (Patton, Dennis D., "The birth of nuclear medicine instrumentation: Blumgart and Yens, 1925," Journal of Nuclear Medicine, 44, No. 8 [2003] 1362-1365).  Digital facsimile from PubMedCentral at this link.

A study of the electrical field surrounding active heart muscle.

Heart, 14, 71-109, 1927.

At Johns Hopkins Hospital Craib evolved his fundamental theory of the doublet hypothesis which revolutionized electrocardiographic thinking. Until then, it was held that electricity in the heart differed from electricity elsewhere, in that it consisted of negativity only - a view known as the negativity hypothesis. He was to show that electrocardiography in the heart was the same as elsewhere, and consisted of both negativity and positivity. This challenged the views held by the establishment of his day and was met with reactive and, at times, destructive criticism.

Firdausu'l-Hikmat or Paradise of wisdom. Edited by M. Z. Siddiqi.

Berlin: Buch-und Kunstr. , 1928.

Firdous al-Hikmah is one of the oldest encyclopedias of Islamic medicine, based on Syriac translations of Greek sources (Hippocrates, Galen Dioscorides, and others). It is divided into 7 sections and 30 parts, with 360 chapters in total. The work was eclipsed by those of Rabban al-Tabari's more famous pupil, Muhammad ibn ZakarÄ«a Rāzi (Rhazes). After writing the work in Arabic Rabban a-Tabari also translated it into Syriac, to give it wider usefulness. However, the information in Firdous al-Hikmah never entered common circulation in the West because it was not edited until the 20th century, when Mohammed Zubair Siddiqui assembled an edition using the five surviving partial manuscripts. There is still no English translation. A German translation by Alfred Siggel of the chapters on Indian medicine was published in 1951. (adapted from the Wikipedia article on Ali ibn Sahl Rabban-al Tabari, accessed 12-2016.)

Review of original edition from jamanetwork.com at this link, from which I quote this selection: "The beginning of the history of medicine in Nebraska can be traced to the week of Sept. 26, 1819, when United States troops came up the Missouri River by steamboat and landed at Fort Calhoun, near Omaha. One of this band, Dr. John Gale, married an Indian chief's daughter, and his grand-daughter, Dr. Suzanne La Flesche, afterward Picotte, graduated from the Women's Medical College of Philadelphia. She thus was the only American Indian woman physician."
