About this Item

Two volumes. 244 x 152 mm. 8vo. viii, 614; vi, 668 pp. Tables, index. Modern brown cloth, gilt spine. Fine. FIRST EDITION. 'This is perhaps the greatest work on the subject." Garrison and Morton. "Hirsch's exhaustive study of medical geography met with immediate critical acclaim and remains a classic in its field. He classified his work into sections which covered acute infectious diseases; chronic infective, toxic, parasitic, septic, and constitutional diseases; and diseases of the organs and other body parts. He discussed the history and geographical occurrence of each disease and such factors as climate, altitude, soil constitution, seasonality, electrical phenomena, and social conditions." H.H. Soon after publication of this work, Hirsch was invited to become a member of the medical faculty at the University of Berlin. He was serving as professor of special pathology and therapeutics and the history of medicine at the time of his death. He served as a member of commissions appointed by the German government to investigate epidemics of cerebrospinal meningitis, cholera, and the bubonic plague in Astrakhan. Garrison and Morton 1778; Heirs of Hippocrates 1847 (1st Eng. ed., 3 vols., London, 1883-1886); Hirsch, III, p. 217; Waller 13678 (2nd ed., 3 vols.). Bookseller Inventory # M4032
