Contemporary cloth-backed marble boards; small cut in blank fore-margin of title page expertly repaired. First edition of this rare open letter written by Semmelweis to all the professors of obstetrics in defense of his epoch-making discovery of the importance of asepsis in childbirth. His great work, Die Aetiologie. , appeared the prior year, but was vehemently opposed by nearly every prominent physician of his day. The present work contains many of the statistics used to prove his original argument that puerperal fever was due to septicemia and caused by unsanitary procedures. Bookseller Inventory #
