About this Item

Hodgkin, Thomas (1798-1866). Lectures on the morbid anatomy of the serous and mucous membranes. Vol. I [Vol. II, part 1]. All published. ix, [11], 402; viii, 541pp. London: Sherwood, Gilbert & Piper [Vol. I]; Simpkin, Marshall [Vol. II, pt. 1], 1836-40. 212 x 132 mm. Half calf, cloth boards, circa 1840. Rebacked, retaining original labels. Slight rubbing at corners. Tear in second leaf of Vol. II repaired. McGill College Medical Faculty Library inscription and stamp on titles. Very good copy. First Edition. Hodgkin was one of the distinguished pathologists connected with Guy's Hospital, where he served as demonstrator of morbid anatomy and curator of the museum from 1825-37. He was the first in England to pursue the lead of Bichat by discussing morbid anatomy from the standpoint of changes in tissue, and to give regular lecture courses in morbid anatomy. His Lectures on the Morbid Anatomy of the Serous and Mucous Membranes stimulated the study of tissue pathology in England. Hodgkin published only a few medical works during his brief medical career, which ended in 1837 after he failed to receive a promotion at Guy's Hospital; for the rest of his life he devoted himself to philanthropic pursuits. He is best known for his classic description of Hodgkin's lymphoma, contained in his paper "On some morbid appearances of the absorbent glands and spleen" (Medico-Chirurgical Transactions 17 [1832]: 68-114).
